2005 Molecular Conduction and Sensors Workshop
27 Jul 2005 
This is the 3rd in a series of annual workshops on Molecular Conduction. The prior workshops have been at Purdue University, W. Lafayette, IN (2003) and Nothwestern University, Evanston, IL (2004). The workshop has been an informal and open venue for discussing new results, key challenges, and...

3D wavefunctions
09 Apr 2010   Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck
In quantum mechanics the timeindependent Schrodinger's equation can be solved for eigenfunctions (also called eigenstates or wavefunctions) and corresponding eigenenergies (or energy levels) for a stationary physical system. The wavefunction itself can take on negative and positive values and...

How do I interpret CV measurements of selfassembled quantum dot stacks?
Closed  Responses: 0
I’ve been reading papers where CV measurements of stacks of selfassembled quantum dots are used to characterise the energy levels in the dots. I am at a loss to interpret the plots. For...

A Gentle Introduction to Nanotechnology and Nanoscience
13 Feb 2006   Contributor(s):: Mark Ratner
While the Greek root nano just means dwarf, the nanoscale has become a giant focus of contemporary science and technology. We will examine the fundamental issues underlying the excitement involved in nanoscale research  what, why and how. Specific topics include assembly, properties,...

A MATLAB code for Hartree Fock calculation of HH ground state bondlength and energy using STO4G
08 Aug 2006   Contributor(s):: Amritanshu Palaria
Hartree Fock (HF) theory is one of the basic theories underlying the current understanding of the electronic structure of materials. It is a simple nonrelativistic treatment of many electron system that accounts for the antisymmetric (fermion) nature of electronic wavefunction but does not...

Atomic Force Microscopy
01 Dec 2005   Contributor(s):: Arvind Raman
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is an indispensible tool in nano science for the fabrication, metrology, manipulation, and property characterization of nanostructures. This tutorial reviews some of the physics of the interaction forces between the nanoscale tip and sample, the dynamics of the...

Atomistic Alloy Disorder in Nanostructures
26 Feb 2007   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Electronic structure and quantum transport simulations are typically performed in perfectly ordered semiconductor structures. Bands and modes are defined resulting in quantized conduction and discrete states. But what if the material is fundamentally disordered? What if the disorder is at the...

Atomistic Modeling and Simulation Tools for Nanoelectronics and their Deployment on nanoHUB.org
16 Dec 2010   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
At the nanometer scale the concepts of device and material meet and a new device is a new material and vice versa. While atomistic device representations are novel to device physicists, the semiconductor materials modeling community usually treats infinitely periodic structures. Two electronic...

Bandstructure in Nanoelectronics
01 Nov 2005   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
This presentation will highlight, for nanoelectronic device examples, how the effective mass approximation breaks down and why the quantum mechanical nature of the atomically resolved material needs to be included in the device modeling. Atomistic bandstructure effects in resonant tunneling...

Bionanotechnology: a different perspective
30 Apr 2008   Contributor(s):: Murali Sastry
The study of the synthesis, exotic properties, assembly/packaging and potential commercial application of nanomaterials is an extremely important topic of research that is expected to have farreaching global impact. The focus of my talk will be on an emerging branch of nanotechnology that...
