How to Write a Research Proposal Workshop

Workshop | December 11 | 2-3:30 p.m. | 9 Durant Hall

 Leah Carroll

 Office of Undergraduate Research

If you need to write a grant proposal, this workshop is for you! You'll get a headstart on defining your research question, developing a lit review and project plan, presenting your qualifications, and creating a realistic budget.

The workshop is open to all UC Berkeley students (undergraduate, graduate, and visiting scholars) regardless of academic discipline. It will be especially useful for...   More >

Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory RTG Seminar: The comparison theorem for algebraic stacks

Seminar | December 11 | 3:10-5 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall

 Chang-Yeon Chough, Institute for Basic Science

 Department of Mathematics

Michael Artin and Barry Mazur's classical comparison theorem tells us that for a pointed connected finite type $\mathbb C$-scheme $X$, there is a map from the singular complex associated to the underlying topological spaces of the analytification of $X$ to the étale homotopy type of $X$, and it induces an isomorphism on profinite completions. I'll begin with a brief review on Artin-Mazur's...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Negative Capacitance Transistors: Numerical Simulation, Compact Modeling and Circuit Evaluation

Presentation | December 11 | 4-5 p.m. | 521 Cory Hall

 Juan Pablo Duarte, UC Berkeley

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Negative capacitance FETs (NC-FETs) are quickly emerging as preferred candidates for extremely scaled technologies for digital and analog applications. The recent discovery of ferroelectric (FE) materials using conventional CMOS fabrication technology has lead to the first demonstrations of FE based NC-FETs. The ferroelectric material layer added over the transistor gate insulator help in several...   More >
