The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor is a device used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. In MOSFETs, a voltage on the oxide-insulated gate electrode can induce a conducting channel between the two other contacts called source and drain. The channel can be of n-typeor p-type, and is accordingly called an nMOSFET or a pMOSFET (also commonly nMOS, pMOS). It is by far the most common transistor in both digital and analog circuits, though the bipolar junction transistor was at one time much more common. More information on MOSFET can be found here.

Lecture 7: Connection to the Bottom Up Approach
23 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
While the previous lectures have been in the spirit of the bottom up approach, they did not follow the generic device model of Datta. In this lecture, the ballistic MOSFET theory will be formally derived from the generic model for a nano-device to show the connection explicitly.
Lecture 3A: The Ballistic MOSFET
10 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
The IV characteristic of the ballistic MOSFET is formally derived. When Boltzmann statistics are assumed, the model developed here reduces to the one presented in Lecture 2. There is no new physics in this lecture - just a proper mathematical derivation of the approach that was developed...
Lecture 3B: The Ballistic MOSFET
This lecture is a continuation of part 3A. After discussion some bandstructure considerations, it describes how 2D and subthreshold electrostatics are included in the ballistic model.
Physics of Nanoscale Transistors: An Introduction to Electronics from the Bottom Up
Transistor scaling has pushed channel lengths to the nanometer regime, and advances in nanoscience have opened up many new possibilities for devices. To realize these opportunities, our traditional understanding of electronic devices needs to be complemented with a new perspective that begins...
Lecture 2: Elementary Theory of the Nanoscale MOSFET
08 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
A very simple (actually overly simple) treatment of the nanoscale MOSFET. This lecture conveys the essence of the approach using only simple mathematics. It sets the stage for the subsequent lectures.
Lecture 4: Scattering in Nanoscale MOSFETs
No MOSFET is ever fully ballistic - there is always some carrier scattering. Scattering makes the problem complicated and requires detailed numerical simulations to treat properly. My objective in this lecture is to present a simple, physical picture that describes the essence of the problem and...
