  2. Quantum Corrections for Monte Carlo Simulation

    05 Jan 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Umberto Ravaioli

    Size quantization is an important effect in modern scaled devices. Due to the cost and limitations of available full quantum approaches, it is appealing to extend semi-classical simulators by adding corrections for size quantization. Monte Carlo particle simulators are good candidates, because a...

  3. Quantum Dots

    21 Jul 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck

    Quantum Dots are man-made artificial atoms that confine electrons to a small space. As such, they have atomic-like behavior and enable the study of quantum mechanical effects on a length scale that is around 100 times larger than the pure atomic scale. Quantum dots offer application...

  4. Random Lasers

    19 May 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Mikhail A. Noginov

    Random lasers are the simplest sources of stimulatedemission without cavity, with the feedback provided by scattering in a gain medium. First proposed in the late 60’s, random lasers have grown to a large research field.This lecture reviews the state of the art of random lasers,provides an...

  7. Scientific Computing with Python

    24 Oct 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Jones, Travis Oliphant

    INSTRUCTORS: Eric Jones and Travis Oliphant.Sunday, October 24, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.Room 322, Stewart CenterPython has emerged as an excellent choice for scientific computing because of its simple syntax, ease of use, and elegant multi-dimensional array arithmetic. Its interpreted evaluation...

  8. Scientific Ethics and the Signs of Voodoo Science

    18 Oct 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew S. Hirsch

    Until recently, the issue of research ethics had not been a subject of explicit discussion within the Physics community. Over the past ten years, however, documented cases of scientific fraud have brought this issue to center stage. We will explore, through case studies, some examples ranging...

  9. Scientific Ethics and the Signs of Voodoo Science

    24 Sep 2007 |

    Until recently, the issue of research ethics had not been a subject of explicit discussion within the Physics community. Over the past ten years, however, documented cases of scientific fraud have brought this issue to center stage. Looking at case studies, this talk explores examples ranging...

  10. Semiconductor Interfaces at the Nanoscale

    17 Oct 2005 | | Contributor(s):: David Janes

    The trend in downscaling of electronic devices and the need to add functionalities such as sensing and nonvolatile memory to existing circuitry dictate that new approaches be developed for device structures and fabrication technologies. Various device technologies are being investigated,...

  11. Sensing Technology Needs in Long-Term Human Space Exploration

    27 Jul 2005 |

    The sensing technologies are mainly derived from three broad areas, namely, absorbance, fluorescence and electrochemical. The development of a sensing system with unique requirements for space applications in these areas will be addressed. The application of these sensing systems in Tissue...

  12. Simple Theory of the Ballistic MOSFET

    11 Oct 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    Silicon nanoelectronics has become silicon nanoelectronics, but we still analyze, design, and think about MOSFETs in more or less in the same way that we did 30 years ago. In this talk, I will describe a simple analysis of the ballistic MOSFET. No MOSFET is truly ballistic, but approaching this...

  16. Solid-State Lighting: An Opportunity for Nanotechnologists to Address the Energy Challenge

    25 Apr 2007 |

    More than one-fifth of the electrical power consumed in the U.S. is used for general illumination. Much of this energy is wasted to heat filaments in incandescent lamps, a century-old technology with an efficiency of about 5%. Fluorescent lighting is more efficient, but problems of color...
