Description

The non-equilibrium Greens function (NEGF) formalism provides a powerful conceptual and computational framework for treating quantum transport in nanodevices. It goes beyond the Landauer approach for ballistic, non-interacting electronics to include inelastic scattering and strong correlation effects at an atomistic level.

    18 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska

    To investigate lattice heating within a Monte Carlo device simulation framework, we simultaneously solve the Boltzmann transport equation for the electrons, the 2D Poisson equation to get the self-consistent fields and the hydrodynamic equations for acoustic and optical phonons. The phonon...

  12. Lecture 4A: Energy Exchange and Maxwell's Demon

    02 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    Objective: To incorporate distributed energy exchange processes into the previous models from lectures 1 through 3 which are based on a "Landauer-like picture" where the Joule heating associated with current flow occurs entirely in the two contacts.Although there is experimental evidence that...

  13. Introduction: Nanoelectronics and the meaning of resistance

    20 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    This lecture provides a brief overview of the five-day short course whose purpose is to introduce a unified viewpoint for a wide variety of nanoscale electronic devices of great interest for all kinds of applications including switching, energy conversion and sensing. Our objective, however, is...

  14. Lecture 2A: Quantum Transport

    20 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    Objective: To extend the simple model from Lectures 1 into the full-fledged Non-equilibrium Green’s Function (NEGF) – Landauer model by introducing a spatial grid of N points and turning numbers like into (NxN) matrices like , with incoherent scattering introduced through . This model will be...

  19. Lecture 5A: Correlations and Entanglement

    20 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    Objective: To relate the one-electron picture used throughout these lectures to the more general but less tractable many-particle picture that underlies it. We introduce this new viewpoint using the example of Coulomb blockaded electronic devices that are difficult to model within the picture...
