Lecture 4A: Energy Exchange and Maxwell's Demon
02 Sep 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To incorporate distributed energy exchange processes into the previous models from lectures 1 through 3 which are based on a "Landauerlike picture" where the Joule heating associated with current flow occurs entirely in the two contacts.Although there is experimental evidence that...

Introduction: Nanoelectronics and the meaning of resistance
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
This lecture provides a brief overview of the fiveday short course whose purpose is to introduce a unified viewpoint for a wide variety of nanoscale electronic devices of great interest for all kinds of applications including switching, energy conversion and sensing. Our objective, however, is...

Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the "bottomup" approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed; however, familiarity with matrix algebra will be helpful for some topics.Day 1: What and where...

CQT Lecture 1: Nanodevices and Maxwell's Demon
30 Nov 2006   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To illustrate the subtle interplay of dynamics and thermodynamicsthat distinguishes transport physics.

CQT: Concepts of Quantum Transport
30 Nov 2006   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Note: For an expanded version of these lectures see Datta's 2008 NCN@Purdue Summer School presentations onNanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance.How does the resistance of a conductor change as we shrink its length all the way down to a few atoms? This is a question that has intrigued...
