Produktbeschreibung

This textbook is aimed at second-year graduate
students in Physics, Electrical Engineer­ing, or Materials Science. It presents
a rigorous introduction to electronic transport in solids, especially at the
nanometer scale.Understanding electronic transport in solids requires some
basic knowledge of Ham­iltonian Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics,
Condensed Matter Theory, and Statistical Mechanics. Hence, this book discusses
those sub-topics which are required to deal with electronic transport in a
single, self-contained course. This will be useful for students who intend to
work in academia or the nano/ micro-electronics industry.Further topics covered
include: the theory of energy bands in crystals, of second quan­tization and
elementary excitations in solids, of the dielectric properties of
semicon­ductors with an emphasis on dielectric screening and coupled interfacial
modes, of electron scattering with phonons, plasmons, electrons and photons, of
the derivation of transport equations in semiconductors and semiconductor
nanostructures somewhat at the quantum level, but
mainly at the semi-classical level. The text presents examples relevant
to current research, thus not only about Si, but also about III-V compound
semiconductors, nanowires, graphene and graphene nanoribbons. In particular, the
text gives major emphasis to plane-wave methods applied to the electronic
structure of solids, both DFT and empirical pseudopotentials, always paying
attention to their effects on electronic transport and its numerical treatment.
The core of the text is electronic transport, with ample discussions of the
transport equations derived both in the quantum picture (the Liouville-von
Neumann equation) and semi-classically (the Boltzmann transport equation, BTE).
An advanced chapter, Chapter 18, is strictly related to the ‘tricky’ transition
from the time-reversible Liouville-von Neumann equation to the time-irreversible
Green’s functions, to the density-matrix formalism and, classically, to the
Boltzmann transport equation. Finally, several methods for solving the BTE are
also reviewed, including the method of moments, iterative methods, direct matrix
inversion, Cellular Automata and Monte Carlo. Four appendices complete the
text.
