Learning Module: History of MEMS
10 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME)
This learning module provides a timeline of the progression of microtechnology through a series of innovations that starts with the first Point Contact Transistor built in 1947 and ends with the optical network switch in 1999. Activities provide the opportunity to build on this timeline and...

The History of Semiconductor Heterostructures Research: From Early Double Heterostructure Concept to Modern Quantum Dot Structures
11 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Zhores I. Alferov
It would be very difficult today to imagine solid-state physics without semiconductor heterostructures. Semiconductor heterostructures and especially double heterostructures, including quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum dots, currently comprise the object of investigation of two thirds of...
The Pioneers of Quantum Computing
19 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: David P. Di Vincenzo
This talk profiles the persons whose insights and visions created the subject of quantum information science. Some famous, some not, they all thought deeply about the puzzles and contradictions that were apparent to the founders of quantum theory. After many years of germination, the confluence...

Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 22: NEMO1D - Motivation, History and Key Insights
07 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
The primary objective of the NEMO-1D tool was the quantitative modeling of high performance Resonant Tunneling Diodes (RTDs). The software tool was intended for Engineers (concepts, fast turn-around, interactive) and Scientists (detailed device anaysis). Therefore various degrees of...

The Transistor: From Shockley, Bardeen, and Brattain to single molecules and atoms
C.V. Raman and the Impact of Raman Effect in Quantum Physics, Condensed Matter, and Materials Science
out of 5 stars
18 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Anant K. Ramdas
Raman’s momentous discovery in 1928 that the spectral analysis of the light scattered by matter, illuminated with monochromatic light of frequency ωL, reveals new signatures at (ωL ± ωi) , ωi’s being the internal frequencies of the matter [Nature121, 501 (1928); Indian Journal of Physics 2, 387...
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 of...
11 Dec 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Victor Hugo Estrada Rivera, Elizabeth Gardner
This is the third contribution from the students in the University of Texas at El Paso Molecular Electronics course given in the fall of 2006.This PowerPoint presentation describes a brief history of how the transistor was developed, how a transistor works and its possible applications. It is at...
