Surprising Nanophotonic Phenomena in Nature
11 Jul 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Bermel
A broad range of optical phenomena in nature have created long-standing mysteries. For example, what gives butterflies and birds their rich colors? And how can sightings of some unusual natural phenomena like mirages or ball lightning be explained? The process of solving these mysteries has...
Surprising Nanophotonic Phenomena in Nature and Photonic Modeling with S4
17 Aug 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Bermel
I will show how S4sim, a transfer matrix-based optical simulation tool available on nanoHUB.org can be used to precisely calculate these behaviors. A few exciting real-world applications of this work will also be briefly discussed.
Time-Dependent Perturbation Theory and Variable Matrix Element
This set of handwritten notes is part of the semiconductor transport class. It gives the derivation of the Fermi's Golden Rule.

Verification of the Validity of the BJT Tool
24 Aug 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
A pnp BJT in Common-Base configuration is analyzed both analytically and numerically using BJT Lab. DC current gain and Output characteristics are computed.MATLAB script used is also available for download.
Verification of the Validity of the MOSFET Tool
11 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Output characteristics of a bulk MOSFET are computed using MOSFET lab and compared with an analytical model based on Bulk-Charge theory. Parasitic resistance is used as a fitting parameter in the analytical model. MATLAB script used for verification is also available for download.
