Title: Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor
Url: http://nanohub.org/courses/quantum_transport
Creator: Datta, Supriyo, 1954-
Publisher: Network for Computational Nanotechnology
Description: Purdue University offers this course to graduate students as a way to introduce students with little or no background in the fields of quantum and statistical mechanics to the world of nanotechnology by using familiar electrical engineering related concepts. This course uses MATLAB, a mathematical software package, to provide examples to illustrate these complex ideas in a semester long course. There are forty-two lectures available using Microsoft Media Player, under the ‘Video Only’ link on this website. Each lecture references a specific chapter from the course book, Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor. This would be a good resource for educators, students, or electrical engineering aficionados looking to increase their knowledge on quantum mechanics.
