Item description for Single Quantum Dots: Fundamentals, Applications and New Concepts (Topics in Applied Physics) by Peter Michler...
This book reviews recent advances in the exciting and rapid growing field of semiconductor quantum dots by contributions from some of the most prominent researchers in the field. Special focus is given to the optical and electronic properties of single quantum dots due to their potential applications in devices operating with single electrons and/or single photons. This includes quantum dots in electric and magnetic fields, cavity-quantum electrodynamics, nonclassical light generation, and coherent optical control of excitons. Single Quantum Dots also addresses various growth techniques as well as potential device applications such as quantum dot lasers, ultra-fast amplifiers, and new concepts like quantum computing using quantum dots.

Valuable review chapters Jun 9, 2007
For the scientist experienced in quantum dots, this text has some valuable review chapters and is practical in nature. It needs updating, as the subject has evolved considerably since the publication date.
For a really useful introduction to quantum dots, try 'Quantum Dot Hetereostructures' by Bimberg, Grundmann and Ledentsov - albeit absurdly overpriced!
