Description

A nanotransistor is a transistor whose dimensions are measured in nanometers. Transistors are used for switching and amplifying electronic signals. When combined in the millions and billions, they can be used to create sophisticated programmable information processors.

  1. Nanoscale Transistors

    19 Jul 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

        These lectures discuss the physics of nanoscale transistors. The focus is on developing a sound, physical understanding of the operation of sub-100nm MOSFETS. The lectures focus of the simple, "essential" device physics using a "top-of-the-barrier" or...

  2. In Search of a Better MEMS-Switch: An Elementary theory of how nanostructured dielectrics may soften landing, increase travel range, and decrease energy dissipation

    06 Jun 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad Alam

    In this talk, I will discuss an elementary theory of the role of nanostructured electrodes in addressing some of the challenges from a fundamentally different perspective. The goal is to start a conversation regarding the viability of the approaches suggested and see if the perspective offered...
