Quantum Wells, Wires and Dots will provide all the essential information, both theoretical and computational, to develop an understanding of the electronic, optical and transport properties of these semiconductor nanostructures. The book will lead the reader through comprehensive explanations and mathematical derivations to the point where they can design semiconductor nanostructures with the required electronic and optical properties for exploitation in these technologies. The first chapters will be concerned with semiconductors and heterostructures and solutions to Schrodinger's equation and numerical solutions. Chapters 4 to 6 will cover diffusion, impurities and excitons. Chapters 7 to 9 will provide information on strained quantum wells, simple models of quantum wires and dots and quantum dots, respectively. Carrier scattering, electron transport, multiband envelope function method, optical waveguiding, introduction to non-linear optical effects, empirical pseudopotential theory and microscopic electronic properties of semiconductor heterostructures will be discussed in Chapters 10 to 16. The final chapter will be on the application of quantum wires and dots.
