A Primer on Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM)
out of 5 stars
04 Apr 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Ron Reifenberger
Scanning Probe Microscopes and their remarkable ability to provide three-dimensional maps of surfaces at the nanometer length scale have arguably been the most important tool in establishing the world-wide emergence of Nanotechnology. In this talk, the fundamental ideas behind the first scanning...
Amine Linked Single Molecule Circuits: Systematic Measurements & Understanding
02 Jul 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Mark S Hybertsen
Formation and function of well-defined linkages between organic molecules and metallic electrodes has been a key issue in the field of molecular electronics. We recently discovered that the conductance of single molecule junctions formed using gold-amine linkages can be measured reliably and...

Combining New Experimental and Informatic Tools for Protein Investigation and Engineering
09 Jan 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Alan Friedman
The stability and activity of proteins is dependent on both the correct functioning and placement of individual amino acids and their interactions. Great attention has been paid to critical individual residues (generally revealed by their location in the active site and their conservation among...
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...
