Description

With the development of advanced fabrication techniques materials and structures that exhibit reduced dimensionality can be synthesized. It is now possible to observe and control quantum size effects in a variety of materials. Examples include semiconductor quantum wells, quantum dots and heterojunctions. Topics to be covered in this course include electrical , optical and magnetic properties of reduced-dimensional materials and nanostructures.
