ElectronPhonon and ElectronElectron Interactions in Quantum Transport
14 Jan 2008   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
The objective of this work is to shed light on electron transport through submicron semiconductor structures, where electronic state quantization, electronelectron interactions and electronphonon interactions are important. We concentrate here on the most developed vertical quantum device,...

The tutorial is based on the Coulomb Blockade Lab available online at Coulomb Blockade Lab. Students are introduced to the concepts of level broadening and charging energies in artificial atoms (single quantum dots) and molecules (coupled quantum dots).A tutorial level introduction to the...

Many Body Effects on Optical Properties of Graphene
11 Jul 2016   Contributor(s):: Subhasis Ghosh
Graphene, a twodimensional (2D) material shows remarkable optical and electronic properties, such as a linear energy dispersion, chirality and halfinteger quantum Hall effect. Multilayer graphene flakes, held together by weak van der Waals forces have also attracted attention due to...
