Nanoelectronic Modeling: From Quantum Mechanics and Atoms to Realistic Devices
25 Jan 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
The goal of this series of lectures is to explain the critical concepts in the understanding of the state-of-the-art modeling of nanoelectronic devices such as resonant tunneling diodes, quantum wells, quantum dots, nanowires, and ultra-scaled transistors. Three fundamental concepts critical to...
Tutorial 4: Far-From-Equilibrium Quantum Transport
29 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
These lectures focus on the application of the theories using the nanoelectronic modeling tools NEMO 1- D, NEMO 3-D, and OMEN to realistically extended devices. Topics to be covered are realistic resonant tunneling diodes, quantum dots, nanowires, and Ultra-Thin-Body Transistors.
