Online Presentations (1-6 of 6)

  1. The History of Semiconductor Heterostructures Research: From Early Double Heterostructure Concept to Modern Quantum Dot Structures

    11 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Zhores I. Alferov

    It would be very difficult today to imagine solid-state physics without semiconductor heterostructures. Semiconductor heterostructures and especially double heterostructures, including quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum dots, currently comprise the object of investigation of two thirds of...

  2. The Pioneers of Quantum Computing

    19 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: David P. Di Vincenzo

    This talk profiles the persons whose insights and visions created the subject of quantum information science. Some famous, some not, they all thought deeply about the puzzles and contradictions that were apparent to the founders of quantum theory. After many years of germination, the confluence...

  4. Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 22: NEMO1D - Motivation, History and Key Insights

    07 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck

    The primary objective of the NEMO-1D tool was the quantitative modeling of high performance Resonant Tunneling Diodes (RTDs). The software tool was intended for Engineers (concepts, fast turn-around, interactive) and Scientists (detailed device anaysis). Therefore various degrees of...

  5. C.V. Raman and the Impact of Raman Effect in Quantum Physics, Condensed Matter, and Materials Science

    18 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Anant K. Ramdas

    Raman’s momentous discovery in 1928 that the spectral analysis of the light scattered by matter, illuminated with monochromatic light of frequency ωL, reveals new signatures at (ωL ± ωi) , ωi’s being the internal frequencies of the matter [Nature121, 501 (1928); Indian Journal of Physics 2, 387...

  6. Technology challenges of the 21st Century

    14 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eugene Meieran

    The 20th century was a century of remarkable scientific and technical achievement, as recorded in the National Academy of Engineering book, "A Century of Innovation". Three forces ("a perfect storm") combined to make this possible; almost universal availability of electric power to enable many...
