Carrier Transport at the Nanoscale
27 Nov 2007   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
Fall 2007Note: A more current teaching of this course with online lectures is available as ECE 656: Electronic Transport in Semiconductors (Fall 2011).This is a course about how charge flows in semiconductors with an emphasis on transport at the nanoscale. After a brief review basic concepts,...

Dynmical Models for Thermopower
19 Apr 2012   Contributor(s):: Giulio Casati
Dynamical nonlinear systems provide a new approach to the old problem of increasing the efficiency of thermoelectric machines. Here we discuss stylized models of classical dynamics, including non interacting complex molecules in an ergodic billiard, a disordered hardpoint gas and systems with...
