  1. 1. Quantum and Ballistic Nanodevices

    Author : Ivan Shorubalko; Fasta tillståndets fysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; III-V semiconductors; low-dimensional structures; nanostructures; ballistic rectifiers; three-terminal ballistic junctions; quantum wires; planar quantum dots; logic gates; harmonic generation; InP; GaInAs; nanoelectronics; Fysik; Physics; nonlinear transport; electron transport; quantum nanodevices; ballistic nanodevices; Fysicumarkivet A:2003:Shorubalko;

    Abstract : In this thesis, electron transport in quantum and ballistic devices was studied. The devices studied here were quantum wires, planar quantum dots, ballistic rectifiers, artificial functional materials, and three-terminal ballistic junctions. The possible application of such devices in the future nanoelectronics was also investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cathodoluminescence Studies of Quantum Structures and III-V nitrides

    Author : Anders Petersson; Fasta tillståndets fysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; AlGaN; Fysik; Physics; GaN-AlGaN; single dot spectroscopy; InP-GaInP; Stranski Krastanow; quantum dots; quantum wires; low-dimensional structures; InAs-GaAs; III-V nitride; Cathodoluminescence; III-V semiconductors; Fysicumarkivet A:1999:Petersson;

    Abstract : Characterization of low-dimensional semiconductor structures is a challenging task. The thesis is based on experiments, using cathodoluminescence (CL) as a tool for characterization. The high spatial resolution and the possibility of spectroscopy of small structures make CL one of the most powerful techniques for these types of investigations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fabrication of Low-Dimensional Structures in III-V Semiconductors

    Author : Ivan Maximov; Fasta tillståndets fysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; III-V semiconductors; plasma; etching; aerosol; lithography; quantum dots; quantum well wires; quantum point contact; damage; luminescence; Fysicumarkivet A:1997:Maximov; Halvledarfysik; Semiconductory physics;

    Abstract : The thesis presents studies on the processing technology and the characterization of nanometer-sized and low-dimensional structures in III-V semiconductors. Two major approaches are described: 1) the combination of aerosol technology and plasma etching for the fabrication of quantum dots (QDs) in InP-based materials and 2) the use of high-resolution electron beam lithography and plasma or wet chemical etching to make quantum well wires (QWWs) in both GaAs and InP-based structures.
