Semester Electives
Subject Code AVM861
Subject Title Physics of Micro and Nanoelectronic Devices


Second in a two part series, this nanoelectronics course provides an introduction to
more advanced topics, including the Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function (NEGF)
method widely used to analyse quantum transport in nanoscale devices. This topic
will explore a number of topics within nanoelectronics, taking a more in depth look at
quantum transport, gaining greater insight into the application of the Schrodinger
Equation, and learning the basics of spintronics which is now a days recent trends in
next generation nanoelectronic
