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 Lecture 2: Electrical Resistance  A Simple Model
30 Nov 2006   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective:To introduce a simple quantitative model for describing current flow in nanoscalestructures and relate it to wellknown large scale properties like Ohm’s Law.

CQT Lecture 3: Probabilities, Wavefunctions and Green Functions
30 Nov 2006   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To extend the simple model from Lecture 2 into the fullblown model combines the NEGF (NonEquilibrium Green Function) method with the Landauer approach.

CQT Lecture 4: Coulomb blockade and Fock space
30 Nov 2006   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To illustrate the limitations of the model described in Lectures 2, 3 and introduce a completely different approach based on the concept of Fock space. I believe this will be a key concept in the next stage of development of transport physics.

Design in the Nanometer Regime: Process Variation
28 Nov 2006   Contributor(s):: Kaushik Roy
Scaling of technology over the last few decades has produced an exponential growth in computing power of integrated circuits and an unprecedented number of transistors integrated into a single. However, scaling is facing several problems — severe short channel effects, exponential increase in...

Design of CMOS Circuits in the Nanometer Regime: Leakage Tolerance
28 Nov 2006   Contributor(s):: Kaushik Roy
The scaling of technology has produced exponential growth in transistor development and computing power in the last few decades, but scaling still presents several challenges. These two lectures will cover device aware CMOS design to address power, reliability, and process variations in scaled...

Designing Nanocomposite Materials for SolidState Energy Conversion
10 Nov 2005   Contributor(s):: Timothy D. Sands
New materials will be necessary to break through today's performance envelopes for solidstate energy conversion devices ranging from LEDbased solidstate white lamps to thermoelectric devices for solidstate refrigeration and electric power generation. The combination of recent materials...

IWCE 2015 presentation. In this work, we report on development of onedimensional (1D) finitedifference and two dimensional (2D) finiteelement diffusionreaction simulators to investigate mechanisms behind Cu related metastabilities observed in CdTe solar cells [1]. The evolution of CdTe...

Digital Electronics: Fundamental Limits and Future Prospects
20 Jan 2004   Contributor(s):: Konstantin K. Likharev
I will review some old and some recent work on the fundamental (and not so fundamental) limits imposed by physics of electron devices on their density and power consumption.

Direct Microcontact Printing of Gold and Silver on Silicon
02 Aug 2007   Contributor(s):: Jamie Nipple
Because microcontact printing (µCP) allows the fabrication of disposable electronic devices with minimum cost, this technique has proven useful in the patterned functionalization of certain chemicals onto surfaces. In time, µCP should allow for the fabrication of sub10nanometer structures and...

Dissipative Quantum Transport Using OneParticle TimeDependent (Conditional) Wave Functions
16 Oct 2015   Contributor(s):: Xavier Oriols
IWCE 2015 presentation. an effective singleparticle schrodinger equation to include dissipation into quantum devices is presented. this effective equation is fully understood in the context of bohmian mechanics, a theory of particles and waves, where it is possible to define unambiguously...

DNA Charge Motion: Regimes and Behaviors
28 Jul 2005   Contributor(s):: Mark Ratner
Because DNA is a quasionedimensional species, and because each base is a pitype chromphore, it was long ago suggested that DNA could conduct electricity. This has become a widely investigated area, and remains of interest for fundamental science and for applications. We will discuss a very...
