In lectures 1-8, we largely consider applications of near-equilibrium electron transport to traditional materials, such as semiconductors with a parabolic energy band, but the theory is much more general. As an example of how to apply the concepts in these lectures, we discuss near-equilibrium transport in graphene, a material that has recently attracted a lot of attention and was the subject of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics.
- Density-of-states and carrier density
- Number of modes and conductance
- Conductance vs. carrier density
