ECE 599 (Special Topics) Nanoelectronic System Design

ECE 599 (Special Topics) - Nanoelectronic Systems Design
Summer 2017

Description: An examination of a variety of emerging nanoelectronic technologies that each exhibit promise for future circuits and systems. Several different technologies will be explored in the context of nanoelectronic applications, including: carbon nanotubes, molecular electronics, DNA origami, spintronics, nanophotonics, and memristors. These various nanotechnologies will be explicitly explored for their potential applications in emerging computer memory, reconfigurable logic, neural networks, nonlinear computing, and potential uses for computer security. At the end of this course, the student is expected to have a broad understanding of nanotechnology and how nanoelectronic devices might be leveraged for emerging, real-world applications.
