Many Body Effects on Optical Properties of Graphene
13 Oct 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Subhasis Ghosh
Graphene, a two-dimensional (2D) material shows remarkable optical and electronic properties, such as a linear energy dispersion, chirality and half-integer quantum Hall effect. Multilayer graphene flakes, held together by weak van der Waals forces have also attracted attention due to...
Auger Generation as an Intrinsic Limit to Tunneling Field-Effect Transistor Performance
22 Sep 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Jamie Teherani
Many in the microelectronics field view tunneling field-effect transistors (TFETs) as society’s best hope for achieving a > 10× power reduction for electronic devices; however, despite a decade of considerable worldwide research, experimental TFET results have significantly...
Computational and Experimental Study of Transport in Advanced Silicon Devices
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Farzin Assad
In this thesis, we study electron transport in advanced silicon devices by focusing on the two most important classes of devices: the bipolar junction transistor (BJT) and the MOSFET. In regards to the BJT, we will compare and assess the solutions of a physically detailed microscopic model to...
