Physics & Technology of Low-Dimensional Electronic Structures

Mansour Shayegan

A broad overview of materials science and physics of low-dimensional electronic structures will be presented. Emphasis is on the fabrication and physics of high-mobility carrier systems in modulation-doped structures. Examples include two-dimensional, one-dimensional (quantum wire), and zero-dimensional (quantum dot) systems.

Sample reading list:
John H. Davies, The Physics of Low Dimensional Semiconductors
