This book is aimed at providing "all" of the essential information, both theoretical and computational, in order that the reader can, starting from essentially nothing, understand how the electronic, optical and transport properties of semiconductor heterostructures are calculated. However, perhaps more importantly, starting from this low common denominator, this text is designed to lead the reader through a series of simple example theoretical and computational implementations, and slowly build from solid foundations, to a level where the reader can begin to initiate theoretical investigations or explanations of their own.
The author believes that there are two aspects to theoretical work, with the first being to analyse and interpret experimental data, while the second is to advance new ideas. His hope is that this book will certainly facilitate the former and will at least provide the knowledge and skills base from which quantified predictions can be developed from the beginnings of an idea. Written in the style of a mathematics course text, it is hoped that this book will appeal to readers from within as well as outside the low dimensional semiconductor community. Some of the examples developed are relevant to the semiconductor community at large, while the microscopic calculations presented could be of interest to other areas of condensed matter, such as carbon nanostructures, high-temperature superconductors, etc.
New material in this second edition includes: sections on effects of magnetic fields on quantum wells excited impurity levels screening of the optical phonon interaction acoustic and optical deformation potential scattering spin-orbit coupling in thepseudopotential calculation and New chapters on strained quantum wells and k.p theory.
Aimed at postgraduate students of semiconductor and condensed matter physics, the book will be invaluable to all those researching in academic and industrial laboratories worldwide.
"Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots Second Edition: Theoretical and Computational Physics of Semiconductor Nanostructures" provides all the essential information, both theoretical and computational, for complete beginners to develop an understanding of how the electronic, optical and transport properties of quantum wells, wires and dots are calculated. Readers are lead through a series of simple theoretical and computational examples giving solid foundations from which they will gain the confidence to initiate theoretical investigations or explanations of their own. Emphasis on combining the analysis and interpretation of experimental data with the development of theoretical ideas Complementary to the more standard texts Aimed at the physics community at large, rather than just the low-dimensional semiconductor expert The text present solutions for a large number of real situations Presented in a lucid style with easy to follow steps related to accompanying illustrative examples
