Reviews

From the reviews:

“This textbook introduces the basic concepts of quantum mechanics that are necessary for understanding nanostructured solid-state devices. … There are several solved examples in each chapter which should help students to better understand the material. Each chapter also includes several special topics in which physical properties are solved in one, two and three dimensions. This book is suitable for first year graduate students of electrical engineering and applied physics as well as researchers in the field.” (Abdolnasser Zakery, Optics & Photonics News, September, 2012)
