  • Covers sophisticated models of charge transport including the drift-diffusion model, Boltzmann transport model and various quantum transport models
  • Discusses the essential elements of quantum mechanics necessary for an understanding of nanostructured solid state devices
  • Presents band structure calculation methods based on time-independent perturbation theory
  • Discusses theory of optical transitions and optical devices employing quantum-confined structures such as quantum wells,wires and dots
  • Elucidates quantum mechanics of electrons in a magnetic field and associated phenomena
  • Discusses mesoscopic device phenomena such as in resonant tunneling devices, Aharonov-Bohm interferometers and other mesoscopic structures

Physics of Nanostructured Solid State Devices introduces readers to theories and concepts such as semi-classical and quantum mechanical descriptions of electron transport, methods for calculations of band structures in solids with applications in calculation of optical constants, and other advanced concepts.  The information presented here will equip readers with the necessary tools to carry out cutting edge research in modern solid state nanodevices. This book also:
