About this book

This book describes in details the theory of the electron transport in the materials and structures at the basis of modern micro- and nano-electronics. It leads and accompanies the reader, through a step-by-step derivation of all calculations, from the basic laws of classical and quantum physics up to the most modern theoretical techniques, such as nonequilibrium Green functions, to study transport properties of both semiconductor materials and modern low-dimensional and mesoscopic structures.

About the authors

PhD in Solid-state Physics at Purdue University (Indiana, USA) in 1969. Since then at the University of Modena with successive positions from research-assistant to Dean of the School of Sciences. Published 3 books and about 170 papers in the field of semiclassical and quantum theory of electron transport in semiconductors. His main contributions are related to the Monte Carlo simulation of electron transport in materials and devices, and to the application of the Wigner-function formalism to quantum transport.
