Hot Carriers in Semiconductor Nanostructures
Physics and Applications
Nonequilibrium--hot--charge carriers play a crucial role in the physics and technology of semiconductor nanostructure devices. This book--one of the first on the topic--discusses fundamental aspects of hot carriers in quasi-two-dimensional systems and the impact of these carriers on semiconductor devices. The work will provide scientists and device engineers with an authoritative review of the most exciting recent developments in this rapidly moving field. It should be read by all those who wish to learn the fundamentals of contemporary ultra-small, ultra-fast semiconductor devices.
