Feasibility of Molecular Manufacturing
14 Mar 2005 
Martin and Laura have an interesting debate about the feasibility of Molecular Manufacturing. Can molecular assemblers be developed to create new materials, new devices, and even macroscopic objects? Find out... If Martin ever wakes up!

MATLAB Scripts for "Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor"
15 Mar 2005   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Tinker with quantum transport models! Download the MATLAB scripts used to demonstrate the physics described in Supriyo Datta's book Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor. These simple models are less than a page of code, and yet they reproduce much of the fundamental physics observed in...

Nanomanufacturing: TopDown and BottomUp
14 Mar 2005 
Martin presents an overview of nanomanufacturing techniques, explaining the difference between topdown and bottomup approaches.

Scanning Probe Microscopes
15 Mar 2005 
Laura explains how scanning probe microscopes can be used to create images of small devices, molecules, and even atoms! A largescale version of the scanning probe microscope is built out of Legos to show the basic principles.

Schred Source Code Download
09 Mar 2005   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska,
Schred 2.0 calculates the envelope wavefunctions and the corresponding boundstate energies in a typical MOS (MetalOxideSemiconductor) or SOS (SemiconductorOxide Semiconductor) structure and a typical SOI structure by solving selfconsistently the onedimensional (1D) Poisson equation and the...

SEQUAL 2.1 Source Code Download
09 Mar 2005   Contributor(s):: Michael McLennan
SEQUAL 2.1 is a device simulation program that computes Semiconductor Electrostatics by Quantum Analysis. Given a device, SEQUAL will compute the electron density and the current density using a quantum mechanical, collisionless description of electron propagation. It was designed to be a...

NanoMOS 2.5 Source Code Download
22 Feb 2005   Contributor(s):: , Sebastien Goasguen
NanoMOS is a 2D simulator for thin body (less than 5 nm), fully depleted, doublegated nMOSFETs. A choice of five transport models is available (driftdiffusion, classical ballistic, energy transport, quantum ballistic, and quantum diffusive). The transport models treat quantum effects in the...

Understanding Molecular Conduction
08 Jul 2004   Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
It is common to differentiate between two ways of building a nanodevice: a topdown approach where we start from something big and chisel out what we want and abottomup approach where we start from something small like atoms or molecules andassemble what we want. When it comes to describing...

Curriculum on Nanotechnology
27 Jan 2005 
To exploit the opportunities that nanoscience is giving us, engineers will need to learn how to think about materials, devices, circuits, and systems in new ways. The NCN seeks to bring the new understanding emerging from research in nanoscience into the graduate and undergraduate curriculum. The...

Exponential Challenges, Exponential Rewards  The Future of Moore's Law
14 Dec 2004 
Three exponentials have been the foundation of today's electronics, which are often taken for granted—namely transistor density, performance, and energy. Moore's Law captures the impact of these exponentials. Exponentially increasing transistor integration capacity, and exponentially...
