This introductory text develops the reader’s fundamental understanding of core principles and experimental aspects underlying the operation of nanoelectronic devices. The author makes a thorough and systematic presentation of electron transport in quantum-confined systems such as quantum dots, quantum wires and quantum wells together with Landauer-Büttiker formalism and non-equilibrium Green’s function approach. The coverage encompasses nanofabrication techniques and characterization tools followed by a comprehensive exposition of nanoelectronic devices including resonant tunneling diodes, nanoscale MOSFETs, carbon nanotube FETs, high-electron-mobility transistors, single-electron transistors and heterostructure optoelectronic devices. The writing throughout is simple and straightforward, with clearly drawn illustrations and extensive self-study exercises for each chapter.

  • Introduces the basic concepts underlying the operation of nanoelectronic devices.
  • Offers a broad overview of the field, including state-of-the-art developments.
  • Covers the relevant quantum and solid-state physics and nanoelectronic device principles.
  • Written in lucid language with accessible mathematical treatment.
  • Includes extensive end-of-chapter exercises and many insightful diagrams.
