Fundamentals of Current Flow
30 Jan 2022 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Everyone is familiar with the amazing performance of a modern smartphone, powered by a billion-plus nanotransistors, each having an active region that is barely a few hundred atoms long. The same amazing technology has also led to a deeper understanding of the nature of current flow and heat...
Solar Ovens: Understanding Energy Transfer
28 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Christina Levyssohn-Silva, NNCI Nano
At the end of this lesson, students will understand that solar energy radiates from the sun to the Earth and gets trapped within the oven. Students will be able to explain how the thermal energy flows from the hot air to the cold water via conduction and will indicate that this would continue...

ABACUS Exercise: Conductivity and Carrier Concentration
20 Jul 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The objective of the first problem is to teach the students how to calculate carrier conductivity in a bulk semiconductor material. The objective of the second problem is to calculate the electron and hole concentrations in a bulk sample for fixed donor and varying acceptor concentration.
Nano*High: Superconductivity, Trains and SQUIDs
02 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: John Clarke
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Nano*High. Superconductivity is a unique phenomenon where the electric resistance of a material drops to zero. Until only a few decades ago, superconductivity was only observed at extremely low temperatures. Today however, a new class of exotic...
