2002 Summer School on Computational Materials Science

Computational Approaches for Simulation of Electron Devices and MEMS

Summer School 2002 icon Updated August 13, 2002 This short course explored a wide range of computational approaches used for the simulations of electron devices and Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). The first week covered nanotransistors, molecular devices and MEMS. The second week covered continuum (drift-diffusion), particle Monte Carlo, and quantum approaches for device simulation, and introduced applications of carbon nanotubes and biological ion channels. Practical simulation experience was stressed using a variety of computational tools available on-line at the Purdue Computational Hub (PUNCH).
