Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots: Theoretical and Computational Physics
Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots 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. A CD-ROM is included giving the computer source codes relating the implementations of these numerical methods to real world research programmes. 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.
