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 2: Elementary Theory of the Nanoscale MOSFET
08 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
A very simple (actually overly simple) treatment of the nanoscale MOSFET. This lecture conveys the essence of the approach using only simple mathematics. It sets the stage for the subsequent lectures.
Lecture 4: Scattering in Nanoscale MOSFETs
No MOSFET is ever fully ballistic - there is always some carrier scattering. Scattering makes the problem complicated and requires detailed numerical simulations to treat properly. My objective in this lecture is to present a simple, physical picture that describes the essence of the problem and...
Lecture 5: Application to State-of-the-Art FETs
The previous lessons may seem a bit abstract and mathematical. To see how this all works, we examine measured data and show how the theory presented in the previous lessons help us understand the operation of modern FETs.

2008 NCN@Purdue Summer School: Electronics from the Bottom Up
26 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam, Supriyo Datta, Mark Lundstrom
Electronics from the Bottom Up is designed to promote the bottom-up perspective by beginning at the nanoscale, and working up to the micro and macroscale of devices and systems. For electronic devices, this means first understanding the smallest electronic device – a single molecule with two...
Physics of Nanoscale MOSFETs
Transistor scaling has pushed channel lengths to the nanometer regime where traditional approaches to MOSFET device physics are less and less suitable This short course describes a way of understanding MOSFETs that is much more suitable than traditional approaches when the channel lengths are of...
Lecture 1: Review of MOSFET Fundamentals
A quick review of the traditional theory of the MOSFET along with a review of key device performance metrics. A short discussion of the limits of the traditional (drift-diffusion) approach and the meaning of ballistic transport is also included.

The Effect of Physical Geometry on the Frequency Response of Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors
03 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Dave Lyzenga
In order for carbon nanotube (CNT) electrical devices to be fabricated, it is necessary to obtain modifiable operation characteristics. Developing parametric equations to achieve this controllability in the vertical field-effect transistor (FET) design is an important first step toward...
