20 Aug 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
This lecture provides a brief overview of the five-day short course whose purpose is to introduce a unified viewpoint for a wide variety of nanoscale electronic devices of great interest for all …
Lecture 1A: What and where is the resistance?
Objective: To introduce a simple quantitative model that highlights the essential parameters that determine electrical conduction: the density of states in the channel, D and the rates at which …
Lecture 1B: What and where is the resistance?
Lecture 2A: Quantum Transport
Objective: To extend the simple model from Lectures 1 into the full-fledged Non-equilibrium Green’s Function (NEGF) – Landauer model by introducing a spatial grid of N points and turning numbers …
Lecture 2B: Quantum Transport
Lecture 3A: Spin Transport
Objective: To extend the model from Lectures 1 and 2 to include electron spin. Every electron is an elementary “magnet” with two states having opposite magnetic moments. Usually this has no major …
Lecture 3B: Spin Transport
Lecture 4B: Energy Exchange and Maxwell’s Demon
Objective: To incorporate distributed energy exchange processes into the previous models from lectures 1 through 3 which are based on a “Landauer-like picture” where the Joule heating associated …
Lecture 5A: Correlations and Entanglement
Objective: To relate the one-electron picture used throughout these lectures to the more general but less tractable many-particle picture that underlies it. We introduce this new viewpoint using the …
Lecture 5B: Correlations and Entanglement
Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance
20 Aug 2008 | Courses | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the "bottom-up" approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is …

Finite Height Quantum Well: an Exercise for Band Structure
31 Jan 2008 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): David K. Ferry
Use the Resonant Tunneling Diodes simulation tool on nanoHUB to explore the effects of finite height quantum wells. Looking at a 2 barrier device, 300 K, no bias, other standard variables, and 3 nm …
Electron-Phonon and Electron-Electron Interactions in Quantum Transport
14 Jan 2008 | Publications | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck
The objective of this work is to shed light on electron transport through sub-micron semi-conductor structures, where electronic state quantization, electron-electron interactions and electron-phonon …
Engineering at the nanometer scale: Is it a new material or a new device?
06 Nov 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gerhard Klimeck
This seminar will overview NEMO 3D simulation capabilities and its deployment on the nanoHUB as well as an overview of the nanoHUB impact on the community.
Quantum Ballistic Transport in Semiconductor Heterostructures
27 Aug 2007 | Publications | Contributor(s): Michael McLennan
The development of epitaxial growth techniques has sparked a growing interest in an entirely quantum mechanical description of carrier transport. Fabrication methods, such as molecular beam epitaxy …
Orbital Mediated Tunneling in a New Unimolecular Rectifier
25 May 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Robert Metzger, NCN SLC@Northwestern
In 1997 we showed that hexadecylquinolinium tricyanoquinodimethanide is a unimolecular rectifier, by scanning tunneling microscopy and also as a Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) monolayer, sandwiched between …
Pan American Advanced Study Institute Lectures: Nanodevices and Maxwell’s Demon
