A transistor is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals. It is made of a solid piece of semiconductor material, with at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A voltage or current applied to one pair of the transistor's terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. Because the controlled (output) power can be much more than the controlling (input) power, the transistor provides amplification of a signal.More information on Transistor can be found here.
Lecture 1: Introduction to Near-equilibrium Transport
20 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
A short overview of the topics to be discussed in the following nine lectures in this short course on near-equilibrium transport.
The History of Semiconductor Heterostructures Research: From Early Double Heterostructure Concept to Modern Quantum Dot Structures
11 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Zhores I. Alferov
It would be very difficult today to imagine solid-state physics without semiconductor heterostructures. Semiconductor heterostructures and especially double heterostructures, including quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum dots, currently comprise the object of investigation of two thirds of...

Taxonomy of spintronics (a zoo of devices)
out of 5 stars
02 Nov 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Dmitri Nikonov, George Bourianoff
The presentation deals with classification of logic devices based on electron spin as a computational variable. Requirements for logic devices are reviewed. Specifically we focus on a) concatenability (output of one device can drive another) and b) the complete set of Boolean operators (NOT,...
Metal Oxide Nanowires as Gas Sensing Elements: from Basic Research to Real World Applications
21 Sep 2009 | | Contributor(s):: andrei kolmakov
Quasi 1-D metal oxide single crystal chemiresistors are close to occupy their specific niche in the real world of solid state sensorics. Potentially, the major advantage of this kind of sensors with respect to available granular thin film sensors will be their size and stable, reproducible and...
