Landolt-Börnstein - Group III Condensed Matter

1 Survey of mesoscopic quantum transport

Abstract

This chapter provides an introduction to survey of mesoscopic quantum transport. Semiconductor inversion layers provide an outstanding laboratory for the investigation of quantum mechanical phenomena in condensed matter, since many of their properties like charge carrier density and mobility can be adjusted by external means. The elements of the semi-classical description of electrical transport are briefly summarized in other sections.
