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

Tero T. Heikkilä


This book, which provides an introduction to the field of nanoelectronics, explains the physical phenomena that take place in nanoelectronic structures and explains how these phenomena are accessed in measurements. The emphasis is on phenomena taking place at low temperatures, where thermal noise cannot completely suppress the interesting physics. The book details the theory of the phenomena as much as possible without the use of heavy formalism. The main topics it discusses are the semiclassical theory of electron transport, the scattering theory of quantum transport, quantum interference eff ... More

Keywords: nanoelectronics, electron transport phenomena, nanomechanics, graphene, superconductivity, fluctuations, quantum transport
