This is the first available volume to consolidate prominent topics in the emerging field of nanostructured systems. Recent technological advancements have led to a new era of nanostructure physics, allowing for the fabrication of nanostructures whose behavior is dominated by quantum interference effects. This new capability has enthused the experimentalist and theorist alike. Innumerable possibilities have now opened up for physical exploration and device technology on the nanoscale. This book, with contributions from five pioneering researchers, will allow the expert and novice alike to explore a fascinating new field.
Provides a state-of-the-art review of quantum-scale artificially nanostructured electronic systems Includes contributions by world-known experts in the field Opens the field to the non-expert with a concise introduction Features discussions of: Low-dimensional condensed matter physics Properties of nanostructured, ultrasmall electronic systems Mesoscopic physics and quantum transport Physics of 2D electronic systems
Condensed-matter physicists, electrical engineers, and materials scientists.
