  1. Nanomaterials: Quantum Dots, Nanowires and Nanotubes

    15 Jul 2005 | | Contributor(s)::

    What is a quantum dot? What is a nanowire? What is a nanotube? Why are these interesting and what are their potential applications? How are they made? This presentation is intended to begin to answer these questions while introducing some fundamental concepts such as wave-particle duality,...

  2. Nanodevices: A Bottom-up View

    13 Jun 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    It is common to differentiate between two ways of building a nanodevice: a top-down approach where we start from something big and chisel out what we want and a bottom-up approach where we start from something small like atoms or molecules and assemble what we want.

  3. Public Speaking for Scientists and Engineers

    26 May 2005 | | Contributor(s)::

    Presented as part of the 2005 NCN Student Leadership workshop. Original presentation made at the CNS Career Advancement Program for Engineers and Scientists (CNS CAPES)

  4. An Introduction to BioMEMS and Bionanotechnology

    07 Feb 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Rashid Bashir

    This lecture series introduces the basic concepts and key topics underlying the interdisciplinary areas of BioMEMS and Bionanotechnology.

  5. CMOS Nanotechnology

    07 Jul 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    In non-specialist language, this talk introduces CMOS technology used for modern electronics. Beginning with an explanation of "CMOS," the speaker relates basic system considerations of transistor design and identifies future challenges for CMOS electronics. Anyone with an elementary...

  6. Introduction to Nanometer Scale Science & Technology

    18 Jan 2005 | | Contributor(s)::

    This seminar will provide an introductory overview for non-experts of the emerging field of nanometer scale science and technology. The following topics will be emphasized: (1) historical background and motivation for the study of nanometer scale phenomena; (2) strategies for controlling the...

  7. Transistors

    04 Aug 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    The transistor is the basic element of electronic systems. The integrated circuits inside today's personal computers, cell phones, PDA's, etc., contain hundreds of millions of transistors on a chip of silicon about 2 cm on a side. Each technology generation, engineers shrink the size of...
