Book Description

18 Dec 2009 047077097X 978-0470770979 3rd Edition
Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots, 3rd Edition is aimed at providing all 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. Completely revised and updated, this text is designed to lead the reader through a series of simple 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.

Product Description

From the Author

Author's comments
This is a comprehensive text on the theoretical and computational physics of `quantum wells, wires and dots'. It is aimed primarily at the graduate student, however is extensive enough to act as a reference guide for the more experienced researcher. The book comes complete with CDROM of all the sourcecodes and worked examples covered in the book. Further information and software updates are available from the web site --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

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 the pseudopotential 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 23 Nov 2004
By El Duderino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is the best you are going to find for new quantum electronics. It covers all the essentials (wells, wires and dots as the title says) and, AND it gives you all the code used to generate every figure. This way you can work all the numbers and equations yourself. Yes, it is very expensive, but hey, Harrison has to eat man; a book like this has a real limited audience, so you have to bear the cost to be elite.

The code is all C code and can be run in unix or linux. You can also get an emulator (cygwin.com) or translate into your favorite C. The author has a great website with errata and software updates.

Again, the ability to follow along by running your own code helps really bring the information across. The book and the code are both well written.

Excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great work 29 Nov 2002
By a reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It is a great work of this book. I think it is very useful to readers with all kinds of levels. But it is a pity I can't buy it in my own country-mainland of China. Could you give me a chance? Thanks!
