Books and MATLAB codes
* Electronic Transport in Mesoscopic Systems, Cambridge 1995, 1997 is intended to introduce the scattering theory of transport (Landauer-Buttiker formalism) and relate it to the NEGF method, with graduate students in physics and electrical engineering in mind. * Chapter 8 presents the NEGF method relating it to the Landauer formalism.
* Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor, Cambridge 2005 is intended to introduce the NEGF method to graduate students in electrical engineering, physics and chemistry. * Chapters 8-11 and the Appendix present the NEGF method.
* ERRATA Prepared by Seokmin Hong
* Lessons from Nanoelectronics (LNE) is intended for a broad audience including students and professionals in other science and engineering disciplines. It assumes a knowledge of differential equations and linear algebra, but no specific disciplinary background.
For the Second Edition (2017) this book was split into two parts, with Part B devoted to making the NEGF (Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function) method accessible to to all science and engineering students (with concrete examples and appropriate caveats) without requiring a background in advanced quantum statistical mechanics.
My latest book (LNE) was developed as an accompanying text for an online course first offered on nanoHUB in 2012, and later on edX in 2015 and 2018. Related video lectures, quizzes, homework problems and solutions can all be accessed by going to
