CQT Introduction View Flash View
A short overview of this series of four lectures is given.

CQT Lecture 1: Nanodevices and Maxwell's Demon View Flash View Notes MATLAB codes
Objective: To illustrate the subtle interplay of dynamics and thermodynamicsthat distinguishes transport physics.

CQT Lecture 2: Electrical Resistance - A Simple Model View Flash View Notes MATLAB codes
Objective: To introduce a simple quantitative model for describing current flow in nanoscalestructures and relate it to well-known large scale properties like Ohm’s Law.

CQT Lecture 3: Probabilities, Wavefunctions and Green Functions View Flash View Notes MATLAB codes
Objective: To extend the simple model from Lecture 2 into the full-blown model combines the NEGF (Non-Equilibrium Green Function) method with the Landauer approach.

CQT Lecture 4: Coulomb blockade and Fock space View Flash View Notes MATLAB codes
Objective: To illustrate the limitations of the model described in Lectures 2, 3 and introduce a completely different approach based on the concept of Fock space. I...
