The Physics of Nanoelectronics : Transport and Fluctuation Phenomena at Low Temperatures, Hardback Book

The Physics of Nanoelectronics : Transport and Fluctuation Phenomena at Low Temperatures Hardback

Part of the Oxford Master Series in Physics series

Description

Advances in nanotechnology have allowed physicists and engineers to miniaturize electronic structures to the limit where finite-size related phenomena start to impact their properties.

This book discusses such phenomena and models made for their description.

The book starts from the semiclassical description of nonequilibrium effects, details the scattering theory used for quantum transport calculations, and explains the main interference effects.

It also describeshow to treat fluctuations and correlations, how interactions affect transport through small islands, and how superconductivity modifies these effects.

The last two chapters describe new emerging fields related with graphene and nanoelectromechanics.

The focus of the book is on the phenomena ratherthan formalism, but the book still explains in detail the main models constructed for these phenomena.

It also introduces a number of electronic devices, including the single-electron transistor, the superconducting tunnel junction refrigerator, and the superconducting quantum bit.
