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...
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...
