Electronics From the Bottom Up: a view of conductance
17 Aug 2007   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Resistance is one of the first concepts an electrical engineer learns, but things get interesting at the nanoscale. Experimentalists have found that no matter how short the resistor is, its resistance cannot drop below a fundamental lower limit. They also found that resistance increases in...

Introduction: Nanoelectronics and the meaning of resistance
20 Aug 2008   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
This lecture provides a brief overview of the fiveday short course whose purpose is to introduce a unified viewpoint for a wide variety of nanoscale electronic devices of great interest for all kinds of applications including switching, energy conversion and sensing. Our objective, however, is...

Lecture 1: Percolation in Electronic Devices
04 Nov 2008   Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
Even a casual review of modern electronics quickly convinces everyone that randomness of geometrical parameters must play a key role in understanding the transport properties. Despite the diversity of these phenomena however, the concepts percolation theory provides a broad theoretical framework...

Lecture 2: General Model for Transport
28 Jul 2011   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
Datta's model of a nanodevice is introduced as a general way of describing nanodevices as well, as bulk metals and semiconductors.

17 Sep 2009   Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam

Lecture 2: Thresholds, Islands, and Fractals
04 Nov 2008   Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
Three basic concepts of the percolation theory – namely, percolation threshold, cluster size distribution, and fractal dimension – are defined and methods to calculate them are illustrated via elementary examples. These three concepts will form the theoretical foundation for discussion in...

Lecture 3: ResistanceBallistic to Diffusive
28 Jul 2011   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
The resistance of a ballistic conductor and concepts, such as the quantumcontact resistance, are introduced and discussed. The results are then generalized to treat transport all the way from the ballistic to diffusive regimes.
