Please Note: A newer version of this course is now availableand we would greatly appreciate your feedback regarding the new format and contents.Welcome to the ECE 453 lectures.The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer material and devices on a length scale as small as...

Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the "bottomup" approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed; however, familiarity with matrix algebra will be helpful for some topics.Day 1: What and where...
