Electronics from the Bottom Up is designed to promote the bottom-up perspective by beginning at the nanoscale, and working up to the micro and macroscale of devices and systems. For electronic devices, this means first understanding the smallest electronic device – a single molecule with two contacts. For carrier transport, it means beginning at the nanoscale where ballistic transport, atomistic effects, and stochastic effects dominate. For MOSFETs, it means beginning with the “ultimate” MOSFET. Electronics from the Bottom Up does not mean ab initio numerical simulations – it means beginning with concepts and approaches that are both simple and sound at the nanoscale rather than extrapolated from the microscale.
