Comparative analysis of analytical model and full Ensemble Monte Carlo simulation which takes into account both the short-range and the long-range coulomb interaction in the presence of random dopants and random traps is performed.
We investigate the role of self-heating effects on the electrical characteristics of a silicon nanowire transistor using a 3-D Monte Carlo device simulator that includes self-consistent solution of the energy balance equations for both acoustic [...]
This paper describes recent work on a valve to regulate liquid flow in micro/nano-fluidic channels using electrodeposited nanostructures on a solid-state AgGeSe electrolyte. The valve utilizes the extremely rough surface morphology of the electrodeposits to [...]
We present an in-situ non-electronic method for MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems) microphone optimization by sensitivity adjustment via the growth/retraction of nano-electrodeposits to achieve high directionality in hearing aid applications. Using a DC bias at room temperature, nano-electrodeposits [...]
We have developed the first self-consistent thermal electron-phonon simulator which solves the Boltzmann transport equation for the electrons and the energy balance equations for phonons, and as such allows us to make realistic estimates on [...]

The objective of this research is to evaluate the potential risk of human exposure to nanomaterials in drinking water by examining three issues: 1) characteristics and stability of nanomaterials in the water environment; 2) removal [...]
There are increasing concerns about the health and environmental impact of nanomaterials. The study of Sun et. al 2006 provided the evidence of facilitated bioaccumulation of As(V) in carp in the presence of titanium dioxide [...]
