Progress in technology has brought microelectronics to the nanoscale, but nanoelectronics is not yet a well-defined engineering discipline with a coherent, experimentally verified, theoretical framework. The NCN has a vision for a new, 'bottom-up' approach to electronics, which involves: understanding electronic conduction at the atomistic level; formulating new simulation techniques; developing a new generation of software tools; and bringing this new understanding and perspective into the classroom. We address problems in atomistic phenomena, quantum transport, percolative transport in inhomogeneous media, reliability, and the connection of nanoelectronics to new problems such as biology, medicine, and energy. We work closely with experimentalists to understand nanoscale phenomena and to explore new device concepts. In the course of this work, we produce open source software tools and educational resources that we share with the community through the nanoHUB.
This page is a starting point for nanoHUB users interested in nanoelectronics. It lists key resources developed by the NCN Nanoelectronics team. The nanoHUB contains many more resources for nanoelectronics, and they can be located with the nanoHUB search function. To find all nanoelectronics resources, search for 'nanoelectronics.' To find those contributed by the NCN nanoelectronics team, search for 'NCNnanoelectronics.' More information on Nanoelectronics can be found here.

All-optical Magnetization Switching Mediated by Laser-induced Spin Current
21 May 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Satoshi Iihama
The manipulation of magnetization solely by the ultrashort laser pulse has attracted attention for future ultrafast and low-energy spintronics device [1-4]. GdFeCo has been predominant materials system showing all-optical single-shot magnetization switching. The magnetization switching of GdFeCo...
Mechanical Exfoliation as a Route to Nanomanufacturing of 2D van der Waals Bonded
11 May 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Daryl Chrzan
In this talk I present a mechanical exfoliation method able to reliably produce large patterned monolayer samples and place them with upon a substrate in desired locations. The method relies on the epitaxial strain imposed upon the layer to be exfoliated by the deposition of a thin metallic film.
2D Valley-Spin Transport in Transition Metal Dichalcogenides
07 May 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Zhihong Chen
In this talk, we first report that valley current can be electrically induced and detected through the valley Hall effect and inverse valley Hall effect, respectively, in monolayer molybdenum disulfide. We compare temperature and channel length dependence of non-local electrical signals in...
