Item description for Nanostructures: Theory and Modelling (NanoScience and Technology) by C. Delerue & M. Lannoo...
Progress in nanoscience is becoming increasingly dependent on simulation and modelling.This isdue to acombination of three factors: the reduced size of nano-objects, the increasing power of computers, and the development of new theoretical methods. This book represents the first attempt to provide the theoretical background needed by physicists, engineers and students to simulate nanodevices, semiconductor quantum dots and molecular devices. It presents in a unified way the theoretical concepts, the more recent semi-empirical and ab-initio methods, and their application to experiments. The topics include quantum confinement, dielectric and optical properties, non-radiative processes, defects and impurities, and quantum transport. This guidebook not only provides newcomers with an accessible overview (requiring only basic knowledge of quantum mechanics and solid-state physics) but alsoprovides active researchers with practical simulation tools.
