Abstract

Nanoscience is a fast-moving field with strong potential for developing important, new technologies. Numerous review articles and even textbooks are beginning to appear. This series is intended, however, to address a very different need, namely the need to develop conceptual frameworks that can help unify the diverse phenomena being discovered. Such frameworks may not yet be in final form but this series will provide a forum for them to evolve and develop into the textbooks of tomorrow that train our students and guide young researchers as they turn nanoscience into nanotechnology. The focus of the series is on electronics, but volumes in areas of nanoscience and technology broadly related to electronics will be also be considered, as long as they are driven by a quest for unifying principles that embed a diversity of phenomena or techniques.

  1. Near-Equilibrium Transport Fundamentals and Applications

    Papers | 30 Jan 2022 | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom, Changwook Jeong | 353 users

    These lectures are designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of carrier transport in nano-devices using a novel, “bottom up approach” that agrees with traditional methods when devices are large, but which also works for nano-devices.

  2. Thermal Energy at the Nanoscale

    Papers | 31 Jan 2022 | Contributor(s): Timothy S Fisher | 203 users

    These lecture notes provide a detailed treatment of the thermal energy storage and transport by conduction in natural and fabricated structures.

  3. Fundamentals of Current Flow

    Papers | 30 Jan 2022 | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta | 326 users

    Everyone is familiar with the amazing performance of a modern smartphone, powered by a billion-plus nanotransistors, each having an active region that is barely a few hundred atoms long. The same amazing technology has also led to a deeper understanding of the nature of current flow and heat...

    Papers | 30 Jan 2022 | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom | 1119 users

    The objective of these lectures is to provide readers with an understanding of the essential physics of nanoscale transistors as well as some of the practical technological considerations and fundamental limits. This book is written in a way that is broadly accessible to students with only a...

  6. Applied Thermal Measurement at the Nanoscale

    Papers | 09 Feb 2022 | Contributor(s): Zhen Chen, Chris Dames | 153 users

    This book aims to serve as a practical guide for novices to design and conduct measurements of thermal properties at the nanoscale using electrothermal techniques. An outgrowth of the authors’ tutorials for new graduate students in their own labs, it includes practical details on...
