About the Scholar: Irene Chen grew up in the United States and attended Leland High School in San Jose, California
Since transistors, the foundation of modern electronic devices, became commercially available in the 1960s, “Moore’s Law,” which states that the number of transistors that can fit into an integrated circuit doubles every two years, has applied. In the last couple of years, however, progress has slowed considerably. Nanotechnology is emerging as a new way to enhance transistor speed. Pioneer scholar Irene explores the possibilities of this new technology by creating a simulation of a single-electron transistor. She develops an algorithm for one particular single-electron model, demonstrating that such a transistor is possible, and describes promising paths for further research.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
