Resources (1-4 of 4)

  1. Thermal Transport Across Interfaces

    23 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy S Fisher

    These lectures provide a theoretical development of the transport ofthermal energy by conduction in nanomaterials, in which materialinterfaces typically dominate transport. The physical nature of energytransport by two carriers: electrons and phonons--will be explored.

  2. Additional Tutorials on Selected Topics in Nanotechnology

    29 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck, Umesh V. Waghmare, Timothy S Fisher, N. S. Vidhyadhiraja

    Select tutorials in nanotechnology, a part of the 2010 NCN@Purdue Summer School: Electronics from the Bottom Up.

  3. Tutorial 2: A Bottom-Up View of Heat Transfer in Nanomaterials

    23 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy S Fisher

    This lecture provides a theoretical development of the transport of thermal energy by conduction in nanomaterials. The physical nature of energy transport by two carriers—electrons and phonons--will be explored from basic principles using a common Landauer framework. Issues including the quantum...

  4. 2010 NCN@Purdue Summer School: Electronics from the Bottom Up

    18 Jan 2011 |

    Electronics from the Bottom Up seeks to bring a new perspective to electronic devices – one that is designed to help realize the opportunities that nanotechnology presents.
