Progress in technology has brought microelectronics to the nanoscale, but nanoelectronics is not yet a well-defined engineering discipline with a coherent, experimentally verified, theoretical framework. The NCN has a vision for a new, 'bottom-up' approach to electronics, which involves: understanding electronic conduction at the atomistic level; formulating new simulation techniques; developing a new generation of software tools; and bringing this new understanding and perspective into the classroom. We address problems in atomistic phenomena, quantum transport, percolative transport in inhomogeneous media, reliability, and the connection of nanoelectronics to new problems such as biology, medicine, and energy. We work closely with experimentalists to understand nanoscale phenomena and to explore new device concepts. In the course of this work, we produce open source software tools and educational resources that we share with the community through the nanoHUB.
This page is a starting point for nanoHUB users interested in nanoelectronics. It lists key resources developed by the NCN Nanoelectronics team. The nanoHUB contains many more resources for nanoelectronics, and they can be located with the nanoHUB search function. To find all nanoelectronics resources, search for 'nanoelectronics.' To find those contributed by the NCN nanoelectronics team, search for 'NCNnanoelectronics.'

Variation-Aware Nanosystem Design Kit (NDK)
30 Jul 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Gage Hills
Carbon nanotube field-effect transistors (CNFETs) are promising candidates for building energy-efficient digital systems at highly scaled technology nodes. However, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are inherently subject to variations that reduce circuit yield, increase susceptibility to noise, and...

Empirical Tight-binding Parameterization of SmSe in the sp3d5f7s* model
26 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Zhengping Jiang, Marcelo Kuroda, Yaohua Tan, Dennis M. Newns, Michael Povolotskyi, Timothy Boykin, Tillmann Christoph Kubis, Gerhard Klimeck, Glenn J. Martyna
The Empirical Tight Binding(ETB) method is widely used in atomistic device simulations. The reliability of such simulations depends very strongly on the choice of basis sets and the ETB parameters.The Piezoelectronic Transistor (PET) has been proposed as a post-CMOS device for fast, low-power...

Inelastic Scattering in NEGF: Matlab Implementation and Exercises
02 Jan 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Samiran Ganguly, Supriyo Datta
A set of Matlab scripts has been developed illustrating the treatment of inelastic scattering in non-equilibrium Greens function (NEGF) based quantum transport models. The first script highlights the core principles using a simple conductor described by a (2x2) Hamiltonian matrix, while the...
NanoV: Nanowire-based VLSI Design
08 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: muzaffer simsir
In the coming decade, CMOS technology is expected to approach its scaling limitations. Among the proposed nanotechnologies, nanowires have the edge in the size of circuits and logic arrays that have already been fabricated and experimentally evaluated. For this technology, logic-level design...
