Write down the Schrodinger equation as the – (i) Electron trapped in 2D plane nanosheet (ii) Electron moving ill one-dimension/ nanowire.

Ans. (i) Electron Trapped in 2D Plane Nanosheet - When carriers are confined in one dimension, i.e., along-direction to a very small thickness t, and free to move along X and Y -direction. In nanophysics, it is the case of nanosheets where carriers are [...]

Explain semiconductor nanowire FET and SETs.

Ans. semiconductor nanowire can also serve a similar function as semiconductor carbon nanotube FET and SET channel. Semiconducting nanowires typically have diameters in the range of 10-100nm, and controlled growth can result in nanowires that are quite straight and long, with few defects. Both n-type [...]
