Grain growth is a mechanism to relax residual stresses in thin films. These grains grow out of the thin film surface and are known as whiskers. These whiskers can cause short circuits, so developing scalable and cost effective solutions would increase the reliability and...

Mathematical Models and Simulations Workshop Presentation
10 Mar 2015   Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A DiefesDux, Krishna Madhavan, Yi Kong
Developing engineers for a changing world presents a greater need for students to understand simulations. Understanding mathematical models and simulations are skills that all engineers need for industry and research, but many engineering students lack a conceptual understanding of how to develop...

Quantitative Modeling and Simulation of Quantum Dots
18 Apr 2011   Contributor(s):: Muhammad Usman
Quantum dots grown by selfassembly process are typically constructed by 50,000 to 5,000,000 structural atoms which confine a small, countable number of extra electrons or holes in a space that is comparable in size to the electron wavelength. Under such conditions quantum dots can be interpreted...
