About this book

This book describes beautiful optical and transport phenomena related to the electron and nuclear spins in semiconductors with emphasis on a clear presentation of the physics involved. Recent results on quantum wells and quantum dots are reviewed. The book is intended for students and researchers in the fields of semiconductor physics and nanoelectronics.

About the authors

From 1962 to 1998 M. I. Dyakonov was a researcher at the Ioffe Institute in St. Petersburg. In 1998 he became professor at Université Montpellier II, France. His name is accociated with the Dyakonov-Perel mechanism of spin relaxation in semiconductors, the Dyakonov-Shur plasma instability in two-dimensional electron fluid, and the Dyakonov waves at interfaces of transparent anisotropic materials. In 1971, together with V.I. Perel he has predicted new spin-related transport phenomena, one of which, now called the Spin Hall Effect, has become a subject of extensive experimental and theoretical studies. He was awarded the State Prize of USSR in 1973 and the Ioffe prize of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1993.
