A 3D Quantum Simulation of Silicon Nanowire Field-Effect Transistors
5.0 out of 5 stars
17 Jan 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mincheol Shin
As the device size of the conventional planar metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor
(MOSFET) shrinks into the deep sub micron regime, the device performance significantly...
Can numerical “experiments” INSPIRE physical experiments?
20 Dec 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta
This presentation was one of 13 presentations in the one-day forum,
"Excellence in Computer Simulation," which brought together a broad
set of experts to reflect on the future of...

ECE 612 Lecture 8: Scattering Theory of the MOSFET II
Lecture 1: Review of MOSFET Fundamentals
4.0 out of 5 stars
26 Aug 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
A quick review of the traditional theory of the MOSFET along with a review of key device performance metrics. A short discussion of the limits of the traditional (drift-diffusion) approach and...
Lecture 1b: Nanotransistors - A Bottom Up View
20 Jul 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
MOSFET scaling continues to take transistors to smaller and smaller dimensions. Today, the MOSFET is a true nanoelectronic device – one of enormous importance for computing, data storage, and...
Lecture 3A: The Ballistic MOSFET
10 Sep 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
The IV characteristic of the ballistic MOSFET is formally derived. When Boltzmann statistics are assumed, the model developed here reduces to the one presented in Lecture 2. There is no new...
Lecture 3B: The Ballistic MOSFET
This lecture is a continuation of part 3A. After discussion some bandstructure considerations, it describes how 2D and subthreshold electrostatics are included in the ballistic model.
Lecture 4: Scattering in Nanoscale MOSFETs
08 Sep 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
No MOSFET is ever fully ballistic - there is always some carrier scattering. Scattering makes the problem complicated and requires detailed numerical simulations to treat properly. My objective...
Lecture 5: Application to State-of-the-Art FETs
The previous lessons may seem a bit abstract and mathematical. To see how this all works, we examine measured data and show how the theory presented in the previous lessons help us understand the...
Logic Devices and Circuits on Carbon Nanotubes
05 Apr 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Joerg Appenzeller
Over the last years carbon nanotubes (CNs) have attracted an increasing interest as building blocks for nano-electronics applications. Due to their unique properties enabling e.g. ballistic...
MCW07 Modeling Molecule-Assisted Transport in Nanotransistors
06 Nov 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kamil Walczak
Molecular electronics faces many problems in practical device implementation, due to difficulties with fabrication and gate-ability. In these devices, molecules act as the main conducting channel....
Nano Carbon: From ballistic transistors to atomic drumheads
14 May 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Paul L. McEuen
Carbon takes many forms, from precious diamonds to lowly graphite. Surprisingly, it is the latter that is the most prized by nano physicists. Graphene, a single layer of graphite, can serve as an...
On the Reliability of Micro-Electronic Devices: An Introductory Lecture on Negative Bias Temperature Instability
28 Sep 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
In 1930s Bell Labs scientists chose to focus on Siand Ge, rather than better known semiconductors like Ag2S and Cu2S, mostly because of their reliable performance. Their choice was rewarded with...
Optimization of Transistor Design for Carbon Nanotubes
20 Jan 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jing Guo
We have developed a self-consistent atomistic simulator for CNTFETs.
Using the simulator, we show that a recently reported high-performance
CNTFET delivers a near ballistic on-current. The...
