Quantum Mechanics: Landauer's Formula
out of 5 stars
08 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
When a metallic nanojunction between two macroscopic electrodes is connected to a battery, electrical current flows across it. The battery provides, and maintains, the charge imbalance between the electrode surfaces needed to sustain steady-state conduction in the junction. This static...

Thermal Transport Across Interfaces
19 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.
Thermoelectric effects in semiconductor nanostructures: Role of electron and lattice properties
29 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Abhijeet Paul, Gerhard Klimeck
This presentation covers some aspects of present development in the field of thermoelectricity and focuses particularly on the silicon nanowires as potential thermoelectric materials. The electronic and phonon dispersions are calculated and used for the calculation of thermoelectric properties...
