Optimal Device Design



Book Description
Explore the frontier of device engineering by applying optimization to nanoscience and device design. This book shows how robust, manufacturable designs that meet previously unobtainable system specifications can be created using a combination of modern computer power, adaptive algorithms, and realistic device-physics models. Applying this method to nanoscience has the potential to create new devices with new functionality, and it could be the key design element contributing to transitioning nanoscience to a practical technology. Basic introductory examples along with MATLAB code are included, through to more formal and sophisticated approaches, and specific applications and designs are examined. Essential reading for researchers and engineers in electronic devices, nanoscience, materials science, applied mathematics and applied physics.




Professor Levi joined the USC faculty in mid-1993 after working for 10 years at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, New Jersey. He invented hot electron spectroscopy, discovered ballistic electron transport in heterostructure bipolar transistors, demonstrated room temperature operation of unipolar transistors with ballistic electron transport, created the first microdisk laser, and carried out work in parallel fiber optic interconnect components in computer and switching systems. His current research interests include high-performance electronic and photonic systems, RF photonics, very small lasers and modeling their behavior, and optimal design of small electronic and photonic systems. To date he has published over 200 scientific papers, several book chapters, is author of the book 'Applied Quantum Mechanics', and holds 17 U.S. patents
