27 Jan 2010   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Realistic RTDs will have nonlinear electrostatic potential in their emitter. Typically a triangular well is formed in the emitter due to the applied bias and the emitter thus contains discrete quasi bound states.

Quantum and Thermal Effects in Nanoscale Devices
18 Sep 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
To investigate lattice heating within a Monte Carlo device simulation framework, we simultaneously solve the Boltzmann transport equation for the electrons, the 2D Poisson equation to get the selfconsistent fields and the hydrodynamic equations for acoustic and optical phonons. The phonon...

Lecture 4A: Energy Exchange and Maxwell's Demon
02 Sep 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To incorporate distributed energy exchange processes into the previous models from lectures 1 through 3 which are based on a "Landauerlike picture" where the Joule heating associated with current flow occurs entirely in the two contacts.Although there is experimental evidence that...

Introduction: Nanoelectronics and the meaning of resistance
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
This lecture provides a brief overview of the fiveday short course whose purpose is to introduce a unified viewpoint for a wide variety of nanoscale electronic devices of great interest for all kinds of applications including switching, energy conversion and sensing. Our objective, however, is...

Lecture 2A: Quantum Transport
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To extend the simple model from Lectures 1 into the fullfledged Nonequilibrium Green’s Function (NEGF) – Landauer model by introducing a spatial grid of N points and turning numbers like into (NxN) matrices like , with incoherent scattering introduced through . This model will be...

Lecture 3A: Spin Transport
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To extend the model from Lectures 1 and 2 to include electron spin. Every electron is an elementary “magnet” with two states having opposite magnetic moments. Usually this has no major effect on device operation except to increase the conductance by a factor of two.But it is now...

Lecture 5A: Correlations and Entanglement
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Objective: To relate the oneelectron picture used throughout these lectures to the more general but less tractable manyparticle picture that underlies it. We introduce this new viewpoint using the example of Coulomb blockaded electronic devices that are difficult to model within the picture...
