Carrier Statistics Lab: FirstTime User Guide
09 Mar 2009   Contributor(s):: Abhijeet Paul, Gerhard Klimeck, Benjamin P Haley, Saumitra Raj Mehrotra
This firsttime user guide is an introduction to the Carrier Statistics Lab . It provides basic definitions, guidance on how to run the tool, and suggested exercises to help users get accustomed to the idea of distribution functions as well as how these functions are used in determining the...

Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 5: A Day of InClass Simulation: MD of Carbon Nanostructures
13 Feb 2008   Contributor(s):: Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin
In this lecture we carry out simulations inclass, with guidance from the instructors. We use the LAMMPS tool (within the nanoHUB simulation toolkit for this course). Examples include calculating the energy per atom of different fullerenes and nantubes, computing the Young's modulus of a nanotube...

Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 4: Geometry Optimization and Seeing What You're Doing
13 Feb 2008   Contributor(s):: Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin
In this lecture, we discuss various methods for finding the ground state structure of a given system by minimizing its energy. Derivative and nonderivative methods are discussed, as well as the importance of the starting guess and how to find or generate good initial structures. We also briefly...

Resonant Tunneling Diodes: an Exercise
06 Jan 2006   Contributor(s):: H.S. Philip Wong
This homework assignment was created by H.S. Philip Wong for EE 218 "Introduction to Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology" (Stanford University). It includes a couple of simple "warm up" exercises and two design problems, intended to teach students the electronic properties of resonant tunneling...
