Theory of Heat Conduction with Type 5 Boundary Condition
19 Feb 2014   Contributor(s):: Donald E. Amos
In the classical theory, the general solution of the heat conduction problem is expressed in terms of the Green's function. Terms which take into account volumetric heat generation, an initial temperature distribution and boundary conditions can be identified. In the current literature (...

2010 NanoBiophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 4  Gaussian beam propagation  Elastic light scattering  Dynamic light scattering
25 Sep 2010   Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu
Often, experiments involve light beams. A light beam can be defined as a distribution of field that fulfills the approximation in Eq. 20,i.e. is characterized by a dominant wave vector component, k(z) >> k(x) , k(y) . A beam is, therefore, the spatial equivalent of quasimonochromaticlight, where...

Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 23: NEMO1D  Importance of New Boundary Conditions
09 Mar 2010   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
One of the key insights gained during the NEMO1D project was the development of new boundary conditions that enabled the modeling of realistically extended Resonant Tunneling Diodes (RTDs). The new boundary conditions are based on the partitioning of the device into emitter and collector...
