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.

In Search of a Better MEMS-Switch: An Elementary theory of how nanostructured dielectrics may soften landing, increase travel range, and decrease energy dissipation
06 Jun 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad Alam
In this talk, I will discuss an elementary theory of the role of nanostructured electrodes in addressing some of the challenges from a fundamentally different perspective. The goal is to start a conversation regarding the viability of the approaches suggested and see if the perspective offered is...
Theory and characterization of random defect formation and its implication in variability of nanoscale transistors
30 Sep 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Ahmad Ehteshamul Islam
Over the last 50 years, carrier transport has been the central research topic in the semiconductor area. The outcome was a dramatic improvement in the performance of a transistor, which is one of the basic building blocks in almost all the modern electronic devices. However, nanoscale dimensions...
Near-Equilibrium Transport: Fundamentals and Applications
28 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
Engineers and scientists working on electronic materials and devicesneed a working knowledge of "near-equilibrium" (also called "linear"or "low-field") transport. The term "working knowledge" meansunderstanding how to use theory in practice. Measurements ofresistivity, conductivity, mobility,...

A short overview of the topics to be discussed in the following nine lectures in this short course on near-equilibrium transport.
MOSFET Lab Exercise: Series Resistance and Transistor Breakdown
13 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise is supposed to teach the students the role of the source and drain resistance on device output characteristics. The second portion of the assignment is supposed to train students how to simulate MOSFET operation near transistor breakdown.
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...
