About the Authors
  • A comprehensive review of cutting-edge solid state research, focusing on its prominent example – quantum dot nanostructures – this book features a broad range of techniques for fabrication of these nano-structured semiconductors and control of their quantum properties. Written by leading researchers, the book considers advanced III-V and II-VI semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) realized by self-assembly, lithography and chemical synthesis; novel QD structures in nanowires and graphene; and transport and optical methods for control of single QDs. Significant attention is given to manipulation of single spins and control of their magnetic environment, and generation of quantum light emitted by single dots in dielectric cavities and coupled to plasmons in metallic structures. It is a valuable resource for graduate students and researchers new to this field.

    • Gives a direct comparison between the fabrication methods and electron transport capabilities in GaAs and carbon (graphene) quantum dots, an important example from the new field of carbon-electronics
    • Provides an overview of new directions in quantum dot research aimed at future applications such as quantum computation, and secure telecommunications using quantum cryptography and single photons
    • Ideal as a first point of reference for readers new to this research field

    Reviews & endorsements

    "In this book, the reader will find a comprehensive review of QD design and applications written by 69 specialists in the field. Half of the book deals with fabrication methods, while the remaining half summarizes recent results on the control and characterization of QDs by optical techniques. A small part of the book is devoted to several examples for future applications in secure optical communications and linear optics quantum computing. This is a welcome addition to the literature and is suitable as a course material for graduate students. Beyond that, the specific topic of the title makes engaging reading."
