Electronic transport in mesoscopic systems / Supriyo Datta.

By: Datta, Supriyo.
Series: Cambridge studies in semiconductor physics and microelectronic engineering ; 3.Publisher: Delhi : Cambridge University Press, 2011Description: xv, 377 p. : illustrations ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9781107605282.Subject(s): Electron transport | Semiconductors | Green's functions | Mesoscopic phenomena (Physics)DDC classification: 537.6225
Contents:
1. Preliminary concepts-- 2. Conductance from transmission-- 3. Transmission function, S-matrix and Green's functions-- 4. Quantum Hall effect-- 5. Localization and fluctuations-- 6. Double-barrier tunneling-- 7. Optical analogies-- 8. Non-equilibrium Green's function formalism-- Concluding remarks-- Solutions to exercises-- Index.
Summary: This book is the first to give a thorough account of the theory of electronic transport in such mesoscopic systems. After an initial chapter covering fundamental concepts, the transmission function formalism is presented and used to describe three key topics in mesoscopic physics: The quantum Hall effect; localisation and double-barrier tunneling. Other sections include a discussion of optical analogies to mesoscopic phenomena and the book concludes with a description of the non-equilibrium Green's function formalism and its relation to the transmission formalism. Complete with problems and solutions, the book will be of great interest to graduate students of mesoscopic physics and nanoelectronic device engineering, as well as to established researchers in these fields.
