NCN Nanoelectronics: Research Seminars
28 Nov 2007 |
Many research seminars are available on the nanoHUB. Listed below are a few that discuss new device possiblities.
NCN Nanoelectronics: Courses
NCN Nanoelectronics: Simulation Tools for Education
Many simulation tools are available on the nanoHUB. The tools have been well-tested and here include supporting materials so that they can be effectively used for education or intelligently used for research. The educational tools include example a first time users guide and example homework...
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...
Electronics From the Bottom Up: top-down/bottom-up views of length
17 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
When devices get small stochastic effects become important. Random dopant effects lead to uncertainties in a MOSFET’s threshold voltage and gate oxides breakdown is a random process. Even a concept as simple as “channel length” becomes uncertain. This short (20 min) talk, a footnote to the...
Electronics from the Bottom Up: an educational initiative on 21st century electronics
17 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom, Supriyo Datta, Muhammad A. Alam
In the 1960’s, a group of leaders from industry and academia, recognized that the age of vacuum tubes was ending and that engineers would have to be educated differently if they were to realize the opportunities that the new field of microelectronics presented. The Semiconductor Electronics...
2007 Summer Undergraduate Research Intern Program Conference
13 Aug 2007 |
The NASA Institute for Nanoelectronics and Computing and NSF Network for Computating Nanotechnology offers qualifying students the opportunity to become Summer Undergraduate Research Interns (SURIs). SURIs join an ongoing cross-disciplinary research project team comprised of faculty and graduate...
Presentation Publishing on the nanoHUB
10 Jul 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph M. Cychosz
This presentation gives a detailed overview of the process of creating an online presentation for the nanoHUB. It describes how to use Adobe-Macromedia's Breeze presentation tool in conjuction with Microsoft Powerpoint to create a narriated presentation, and how to upload it to the nanoHUB.
3D Molecular Models
21 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Nicholas Vargo
This animation was created as part of the Children's Museum Nanotechnology Exhibit to give the viewer an idea of what objects look like at the nano-level. The molecules range from something as small as caffeine to major proteins and viruses.Nicholas Vargo created this kiosk presentation as an...
From Research to Learning in Chemistry through Visualization and Computation
17 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Jakobsson
Modern chemistry research and high school chemistry education are separated by institutional and geographical boundaries. As such, much of secondary chemistry education is still based on the periodic table instead of the computational methods that drive current chemistry research. In this talk,...
Technology challenges of the 21st Century
14 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eugene Meieran
The 20th century was a century of remarkable scientific and technical achievement, as recorded in the National Academy of Engineering book, "A Century of Innovation". Three forces ("a perfect storm") combined to make this possible; almost universal availability of electric power to enable many...
Atomistic Modeling of the Mechanical Properties of Nanostructured Materials
16 Apr 2007 | | Contributor(s):: SeongJun Heo, Susan Sinnott
The mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes are studied by using classical molecular dynamics simulations. Especially, the effects of filling, temperature, and functionalization on CNT's tensional and twisting properties are considered in this study.
Orientational Dependence of Friction in Polyethylene
16 Apr 2007 | | Contributor(s):: SeongJun Heo
The frictional properties of polyethylene polymer are investigated by using classical molecular dynamics simulations. Especially, the sliding orientational effect is considered in this study. The results of polyethylene are also compared to those of polytetrafluoroethylene(PTFE).
