How do I derive the 2D electron density used in nano MOSFET calculations?
Open | Responses: 1
In nanomos-2.5, the density of charge is obtained by multiplying the square of the wavefunction by a prefactor: with semiclassical method, that prefactor is given by
What Promises do Nanotubes and Nanowires Hold for Future Nanoelectronics Applications?
18 Feb 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Joerg Appenzeller
Various low-dimensional materials are currently explored for future electronics applications. The common ground
for all these structures is that the surface related impact can no longer be...
