RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 34746012 LA English T1 Perspectives in quantum Hall effects : novel quantum liquids in low-dimensional semiconductor structures A1 Sarma, Sankar Das,, Pinczuk, Aron., PB Wiley PP New York YR 1997 SN 047111216X 9780471112167 AB This volume covers key experimental and theoretical developments in quantum Hall phenomena, focusing on the exciting developments of the past decade - a period that saw the field transform into one of physics' most prolific and dynamic research areas. The book offers important new insights into the fractional quantum Hall effect in low-dimensional systems of human-made quantum structures and discusses the quantum Hall effect as both a theoretical method for the study of semiconductors and as a tool for physicists and electrical engineers working in the electronics industry. The various chapters cover the quantum Hall effect in relationship to localization and metal-insulator transitions, as well as multicomponent quantum Hall systems, properties of the electron solid, and edge state transport. A chapter is devoted to the Fermion Chern-Simons theory and the unquantized quantum Hall effect, and subsequent chapters discuss resonant inelastic light scattering from these systems, magnetic field-induced 2D Wigner crystal, and composite fermions in the fractional quantum Hall effect. Perspectives in Quantum Hall Effects is designed for graduate students and experienced researchers, for theorists and experimentalists alike, providing a thought-provoking reference for this rapidly growing field and a source of exciting new ideas for future research.
