|Abstract||The continued miniaturization of silicon-based electronic circuits is fast approaching its physical limitations. It is unlikely that advances in miniaturization, following the so-called Moore's Law, can continue in the foreseeable future. Nanoelectronics has to go beyond silicon technology. New device paradigms based on nanoscale materials, such as molecular electronic devices, spin devices and carbon-based devices, will emerge. In this article, we introduce a nanodevice paradigm: graphene nanoelectronics. Due to its unique quantum effects and electronic properties, researchers predict that graphene-based devices may replace carbon nanotube devices and become major building blocks for future nanoscale computing. To manifest its unique electronic properties, we present some of our recent designs, namely a graphene-based switch, a negative differential resistance (NDR) device and a random access memory array (RAM). Since these basic devices are the building blocks for large-scale circuits, our findings can help researchers construct useful computing systems and study graphene-based circuit performance in the future.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
