Inelastic Transport in Carbon Nanotube Electronic and Optoelectronic Devices
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Siyu Koswatta
Discovered in the early 1990's, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are found to have exceptional physical characteristics compared to conventional semiconductor materials, with much potential for devices surpassing the performance of present-day electronics. Semiconducting CNTs have large carrier...
Intro to MOS-Capacitor Tool
09 Jan 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Emmanuel Jose Ochoa, Stella Quinones
Understanding the effect of silicon doping, oxide (SiO2) thickness, gate type (n+poly/p+poly), and semiconductor type (n-type/p-type) on the flatband voltage, threshold voltage, surface potential and oxide voltage of a MOS-Capacitor.
