An introduction book on quantum states in semiconductor nanostructures

Written by Francesca Carosella and Gérald Bastard from the Pierre Aigrain Laboratory, and Camille Ndebeka-Bandou from the ETH in Zürich, this book is an introduction to quantum states and to their scattering in semiconductor nanostructures.

Written with exercises and detailed solutions, it is designed to enable readers to start modelling actual electron states and scattering in nanostructures.

It first looks at practical aspects of quantum states and emphasises the variational and perturbation approaches.

Following this there is an analysis of quasi two-dimensional materials, including discussion of the eigenstates of nanostructures, scattering mechanisms and numerical results.
