18 NCN’s Electronics from the Bottom Up (EBU) is an innovative educational initiative cosponsored by Intel, NCN, and Purdue University – to introduce students to new ways of thinking about electronic devices. New concepts and approaches, emerging from current research on nanoscience, are applied to non-equilibrium problems like nanoscale transistors, energy conversion devices, and bio-sensors. Lectures are designed to be broadly accessible to students with a BS in engineering, physics, and chemistry. The goal is to provide students with a deeper understanding of how structures at the atomistic and nanoscale affect performance at the micro and macroscopic scales. EBU shows students how a broad understanding of fundamental concepts helps them understand cutting edge research in nanoscience and technology.
20 This program is suitable for graduate students, faculty, and industry professionals working on electronic materials and devices. The Summer School will be an intensive and collaborative experience. Attendance is limited to fifty participants.
22 The 2012 Summer School will feature lectures by Dr. Michael !McLennan on "Rapid Application Deployment" and Professors Mark Lundstrom, Supriyo Datta and Gerhard Klimeck on the topic of "Semiconductor Physics”. Drs. Fonseca, Kubis, Povolotskyi, and Sellier will present a lecture and several tutorials on "Device Modeling with NEMO5."
24 The format will consist of:[[br]]
