NanoElectronics , eventually included in Electronics Engineering Education

MIT:Course Description

Traditionally, progress in electronics has been driven by miniaturization. But as electronic devices approach the molecular scale, classical models for device behavior must be abandoned. To prepare for the next generation of
electronic devices, this class teaches the theory of current, voltage and
resistance from atoms up. To describe electrons at the nanoscale, we will begin
with an introduction to the principles of quantum mechanics, including
quantization, the wave-particle duality, wavefunctions and Schrödinger's
equation. Then we will consider the electronic properties of molecules, carbon
nanotubes and crystals, including energy band formation and the origin of
metals, insulators and semiconductors. Electron conduction will be taught
beginning with ballistic transport and concluding with a derivation of Ohm's
law. We will then compare ballistic to bulk MOSFETs. The class will conclude
with a discussion of possible fundamental limits to

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
