Overview

Providing a much-needed update on the latest experimental research, this new edition has been thoroughly revised and develops a detailed theoretical framework for understanding the behavior of mesoscopic devices.

The second edition now contains greater coverage of the quantum Hall effect, in particular, the fractional quantum Hall effect; one-dimensional structures, following the growth of research in self-assembled nanowires and nanotubes; nanoscale electronic devices, due to the evolution of device scaling to nanometer dimensions in the semiconductor industry; and quantum dots.

The authors combine reviews of the relevant experimental literature with theoretical understanding and interpretation of phenomena at the nanoscale. This second edition will be of great interest to graduate students taking courses in mesoscopic physics or nanoelectronics, and researches working on semiconductor nanostructures.
