2010 NCN@Purdue Summer School: Electronics from the Bottom Up editdelete
This year’s summer school will have two components: a focus on nanoelectronic devices, with an introduction to spintronics and, second, tutorials on selected topics in nanotechnology. First, we use our bottom-up approach to provide a clear perspective on quantum conduction, on converting heat to electricity and its relation to the second law of thermodynamics, and on what recent experiments in electron spin say about subtleties of the quantum world and how it can be utilized for information processing. Our selected topics in nanotech- nology include far-from-equilibrium quantum charge transport, electrical fluctuations, nanoscale material simulation, and heat transfer.
