Quantum Mechanics: Postulates
07 Jul 2008 | Series | Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
A physical system is generally described by three basic ingredients: states; observables; and dynamics (or law of time evolution) or, more generally, a group of physical symmetries. A classical description can be given in a fairly direct way by a phase space model of mechanics: states are points...
Nanotechnology 101 Lecture Series

Introduction to Carbon Nanotube Electronics
12 Oct 2005 | Series | Contributor(s): Susan Sinnott
Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have interesting, structure-dependent electronic properties. In particular, CNTs can be a metallic or semiconducting depending on the way in which the carbon atoms are arranged in the CNT walls. The purpose of this learning module is to familiarize students with the basic...
