Atomic Picture of Plastic Deformation in Metals via Online Molecular Dynamics Simulations
01 Jun 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan
The main goal of this learning module is to introduce students to the atomic-level processes responsible for plastic deformation in crystalline metals and help them develop a more intuitive understanding of how materials work at molecular scales. The module consists of: i) Two introductory...
Short Course on Molecular Dynamics Simulation
13 Oct 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Ashlie Martini
This set of ten presentations accompanied a graduate level course on Molecular Dynamics simulation. The specific objective of the course (and the presentations) is to provide:1. Awareness of the opportunities and limitations of Molecular Dynamics as a tool for scientific and engineering...
Nanostructured Electronic Devices: Percolation and Reliability
17 Sep 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
In this series of lectures introduces a simple theoretical framework for treating randomness and variability in emerging nanostructured electronic devices for wide ranging applications – all within an unified framework of spatial and temporal percolation. The problems considered involve...
Physics of Nanoscale MOSFETs
out of 5 stars
26 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
Transistor scaling has pushed channel lengths to the nanometer regime where traditional approaches to MOSFET device physics are less and less suitable This short course describes a way of understanding MOSFETs that is much more suitable than traditional approaches when the channel lengths are of...
Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance
20 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the "bottom-up" approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed; however, familiarity with matrix algebra will be helpful for some topics. Day 1: What...
