Introduction to Nanoelectronics


Course Description:

Basic quantum phenomena and solid-state physics; physics of low-dimensional materials; electrical and thermal transport in nanostructures, simulation methods including non-equilibrium green's function (NEGF) formalism, ab-initio techniques such as DFT; nanofabrication and characterization techniques including AFM, Raman, SEM, TEM, and XPS; emerging nanomaterials and structures (1D, 2D, etc) including carbon nanotubes and graphene, h-BN, graphene nanoribbons, two-dimensional transition metal di-chalcogenides (TMDC) such as MoS2, WSe2 etc; applications of emerging nanomaterials in electronics, photonics, bioelectronics, energy, and sensing.
