This course examines the device physics of advanced transistors and the process, device, circuit, and systems considerations that enter into the development of new integrated circuit technologies. The course consists of three parts. Part 1 treats silicon MOS and MOSFET fundamentals as well as second order effects such as gate leakage and quantum mechanical effects. Short channel effects, device scaling, and fabrication processes and reliability are the subject of Part 2. In Part …

This set of powerpoint slides series provides insight on what are the tools available for modeling devices that behave either classically or quantum-mechanically. An in-depth description is provided to the approaches with emphasis on the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Conclusions are drawn about the applicability of each approach. There are additional teaching materials that can be found on the nanohub that give more in-depth knowledge about each topic being addressed in this …

In this section of the Quantum Mechanics class we discuss the particle-wave duality and the need for the quantization of energy to explain the black-body radiation and the photoelectric effect. We provide reading material, slides and video, which in a very illustrative way, explain the most difficult concept in quantum-mechanics: the particle-wave duality. A homework assignment, that teaches the students the quantization of the angular momentum and energy and also helps the students to better …

This course will introduce the students to the basic concepts and postulates of quantum mechanics. Examples will include simple systems such as particle in an infinite and finite well, 1D and 2D harmonic oscillator and tunneling. Numerous approximation techniques, such as WKB method, time-dependent and time-independent perturbation theory, variational methods and numerical solution methods of the 1D Schrödinger equation, will be presented. The importance of quantum-mechanics in todays life …

This set of ten presentations accompanied a graduate level course on Molecular Dynamics simulation. The specific objective of the course (and the presentations) is to provide: 1. Awareness of the opportunities and limitations of Molecular Dynamics as a tool for scientific and engineering research 2. Understanding of the compromise between model complexity/realism and computational expense 3. Background that enables interpretation of Molecular Dynamics-based studies reported in the literature

The goals of this course are to give the student an understanding of the elements of semiconductor physics and principles of semiconductor devices that (a) constitute the foundation required for an electrical engineering major to take follow-on courses, and (b) represent the essential basic knowledge of the operation and limitations of the three primary electronic devices, 1) p-n junctions, 2) bipolar transistors, and 3) field effect transistors, that either an electrical engineer or a computer engineer will find useful in maintaining currency with new developments in semiconductor devices and integrated circuits in an extended career in either field.

Transistor scaling has pushed channel lengths to the nanometer regime where traditional approaches to MOSFET device physics are less and less suitable This short course describes a way of understanding MOSFETs that is much more suitable than traditional approaches when the channel lengths are of nanoscale dimensions. lecture 1 reviews traditional MOSFET theory, and Lecture 2 presents the new approach in its simplest form. Lectures 3A and 3B describe the mathematical treatment of ballistic …

This document describes how to generate and download simulation output files from the Nanomaterial Mechanics Explorer on nanoHUB and view them locally using OVITO.

This can be particularly useful for more advanced manipulations of the trajectory files, and for sharing files with others, such as in a classroom environment.
