Electronics From the Bottom Up: a view of conductance
17 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
Resistance is one of the first concepts an electrical engineer
learns, but things get interesting at the nanoscale.
Experimentalists have found that no matter how short the resistor is, ...
Electronics From the Bottom Up: top-down/bottom-up views of length
17 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
When devices get small stochastic effects become important. Random
dopant effects lead to uncertainties in a MOSFET’s threshold voltage
and gate oxides breakdown is a random process. Even...
