Electrical Resistance: an Atomistic View
26 Oct 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
This tutorial article presents a “bottom-up” view of electrical resistance starting from something really small, like a molecule, and then discussing the issues that arise as we move to bigger conductors. Remark ably enough, no serious quantum mechanics is needed to understand electrical...

Electron Emission from Nanoscale Carbon Materials
15 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy S Fisher
Prior studies on electron emission show possibly beneficial effects ofnanoscale phenomena on energy-conversion characteristics. For example,recent work has shown that the electric field around a nanoscale fieldemission device can increase the average energy of emitted electrons. Weconsider here...
Electrons in Two Dimensions: Quantum Corrals and Semiconductor Microstructures
04 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric J. Heller
The images generated by a scanning tunneling microscope are iconic. Some of the most famous are Don Eigler’s quantum corrals, which reveal not only the guest atoms on a surface but especially the interference patterns of electrons shuttling back and forth along the surface. To understand the...
