Physics of quantum electron devices by Federico Capasso ( Book )
10 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and German and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The ability to engineer the bandstructure and the wavefunction over length scales previously inaccessible to technology using artificially structured materials and nanolithography has led to a new class of electron semiconductor devices whose operation is controlled by quantum effects. These structures not only represent exciting tools for investigating new quantum phenomena in semiconductors, but also offer exciting opportunities for applications. This book gives the first comprehensive treatment of the physics of quantum electron devices. This interdisciplinary field, at the junction between material science, physics and technology, has witnessed an explosive growth in recent years. This volume presents a detailed coverage of the physics of the underlying phenomena, and their device and circuit applications, together with fabrication and growth technology

Intersubband transitions in quantum wells : Physics and device applications I ( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its inception in 1966, the series of numbered volumes known as Semiconductors and Semimetals has distinguished itself through the careful selection of well-known authors, editors, and contributors. The Willardson and Beer series, as it is widely known, has succeeded in producing numerous landmark volumes and chapters. Not only did many of these volumes make an impact at the time of their publication, but they continue to be well-cited years after their original release. Recently, Professor Eicke R. Weber of the University of California at Berkeley joined as a co-editor of the series. Professor Weber, a well-known expert in the field of semiconductor materials, will further contribute to continuing the series' tradition of publishing timely, highly relevant, and long-impacting volumes. Some of the recent volumes, such as Hydrogen in Semiconductors, Imperfections in III/V Materials, Epitaxial Microstructures, High-Speed Heterostructure Devices, Oxygen in Silicon, and others promise that this tradition will be maintained and even expanded. Reflecting the truly interdisciplinary nature of the field that the series covers, the volumes in Semiconductors and Semimetals have been and will continue to be of great interest to physicists, chemists, materials scientists, and device engineers in modern industry

Semiconductors and semimetals by Robert K Willardson ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first available volume to consolidate prominent topics in the emerging field of nanostructured systems. Recent technological advancements have led to a new era of nanostructure physics, allowing for the fabrication of nanostructures whose behavior is dominated by quantum interference effects. This new capability has enthused the experimentalist and theorist alike. Innumerable possibilities have now opened up for physical exploration and device technology on the nanoscale. This book, with contributions from five pioneering researchers, will allow the expert and novice alike to explo

Mode Locking of Quantum Cascade Lasers ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A theoretical and experimental study of multimode operation regimes in quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) is presented. It is shown that the fast gain recovery of QCLs promotes two multimode regimes in QCLs: One is spatial hole burning (SHB), and the other one is related to the Risken-Nummedal-Graham-Haken (RNGH) instability predicted in the sixties. A model that can account for coherent phenomena, a saturable absorber and SHB is developed and studied in detail both analytically and numerically. A wide variety of experimental data on multimode regimes is presented. Lasers with narrow active region and/or with metal coating on the sides tend to develop a splitting in the spectrum, approximately equal to twice the Rabi frequency. It is proposed that this behavior stems from the presence of a saturable absorber, which can result from a Kerr lensing effect in the cavity. Lasers with a wide active region, which have weaker saturable absorber, do not exhibit a Rabi splitting, and their multimode regime is governed by SHB. This experimental phenomenology is well explained by our theoretical model

Investigation of Carrier Transport in Photorefractive Superlattices by Time-Correlated Photon Counting ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Recently a new class of photorefractive structures has been demonstrated. These devices rely on the spatial separation of photogenerated electrons and holes to produce a large refractive index modulation via the electro-optic effect and might have potential for all optical switching applications. One of these devices consists of an asymmetric 6-doped superlattice which is optically excited by a picosecond laser source. The resulting space charge field produced by charge separation creates a refractive index change of 3.8xl0-4 at a pump energy density of 40 fJ/um2. In this paper we report the first time-resolved studies of the carrier relaxation in these structures. The measurements were performed by a Time Correlated Photon Counting (TCPC) technique

Multimode Regimes in Quantum Cascade Lasers: From Coherent Instabilities to Spatial Hole Burning ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A systematic experimental and theoretical study of multimode regimes has been performed in high power mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers (QCLs). In narrow devices it is found that above a second threshold the laser spectrum dramatically broadens showing multimode operation with pronounced Rabi sidebands in the envelope of the spectrum. This represents the first direct evidence of the coherent instability associated with population oscillations at the Rabi frequency. For ridge widths much larger than the wavelength, the Rabi sidebands disappear

Nanostructures based on Casimir forces towards the design and control of vacuum fluctuations ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Federico Capasso of Harvard University discusses recent developments on quantum electrodynamical (QED) phenomena and their use in nanomechanics and nanotechnology. Casimir forces and torques arise from quantum fluctuations of vacuum or, more generally, from the zero-point energy of materials and their dependence on the boundary conditions of the electromagnetic fields. Because the latter can be tailored, this raises the interesting possibility of designing QED forces for specific applications
