About this book

This book traces the quest to use nanostructured media for novel and improved optoelectronic devices. Starting with the invention of the heterostructure laser, the progression via thin films to quasi zero-dimensional quantum dots has led to novel device concepts and tremendous improvements in device performance. Along the way sophisticated methods of material preparation and characterization have been developed. Novel physical phenomena have emerged and are now used in devices such as lasers and optical amplifiers. Leading experts - among them Nobel laureate Zhores Alferov - write here about the fundamental concepts behind nano-optoelectronics, the material basis, physical phenomena, device physics and systems.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is an excellent book covering various aspects of semiconductor quantum dots ranging from theory, growth, structural, electronic and optical properties to devices such as quantum dot lasers, photodetectors and optical amplifiers. … will be a valuable resource for researchers and students working in the field." (Chennupati Jagadish, The Physicist, Vol. 40 (1), 2003)
