The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor is a device used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. In MOSFETs, a voltage on the oxide-insulated gate electrode can induce a conducting channel between the two other contacts called source and drain. The channel can be of n-typeor p-type, and is accordingly called an nMOSFET or a pMOSFET (also commonly nMOS, pMOS). It is by far the most common transistor in both digital and analog circuits, though the bipolar junction transistor was at one time much more common. More information on MOSFET can be found here.

  11. Lecture 1: Review of MOSFET Fundamentals

    26 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    A quick review of the traditional theory of the MOSFET along with a review of key device performance metrics. A short discussion of the limits of the traditional (drift-diffusion) approach and the meaning of ballistic transport is also included.

  12. Lecture 1b: Nanotransistors - A Bottom Up View

    20 Jul 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    MOSFET scaling continues to take transistors to smaller and smaller dimensions. Today, the MOSFET is a true nanoelectronic device – one of enormous importance for computing, data storage, and for communications. In this lecture, I will present a simple, physical model for the nanoscale MOSFET...

  13. Lecture 2: Elementary Theory of the Nanoscale MOSFET

    08 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    A very simple (actually overly simple) treatment of the nanoscale MOSFET. This lecture conveys the essence of the approach using only simple mathematics. It sets the stage for the subsequent lectures.

  14. Lecture 3A: The Ballistic MOSFET

    10 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    The IV characteristic of the ballistic MOSFET is formally derived. When Boltzmann statistics are assumed, the model developed here reduces to the one presented in Lecture 2. There is no new physics in this lecture - just a proper mathematical derivation of the approach that was developed...

  15. Lecture 3B: The Ballistic MOSFET

    10 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    This lecture is a continuation of part 3A. After discussion some bandstructure considerations, it describes how 2D and subthreshold electrostatics are included in the ballistic model.

  16. Lecture 4: Scattering in Nanoscale MOSFETs

    08 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    No MOSFET is ever fully ballistic - there is always some carrier scattering. Scattering makes the problem complicated and requires detailed numerical simulations to treat properly. My objective in this lecture is to present a simple, physical picture that describes the essence of the problem and...

  17. Lecture 5: Application to State-of-the-Art FETs

    08 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    The previous lessons may seem a bit abstract and mathematical. To see how this all works, we examine measured data and show how the theory presented in the previous lessons help us understand the operation of modern FETs.

  18. Lecture 7: Connection to the Bottom Up Approach

    23 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    While the previous lectures have been in the spirit of the bottom up approach, they did not follow the generic device model of Datta. In this lecture, the ballistic MOSFET theory will be formally derived from the generic model for a nano-device to show the connection explicitly.
