9780199552696: Introduction to Mesoscopic Physics (Mesoscopic Physics and Nanotechnology)

Mesoscopic physics refers to the physics of structures larger than a nanometer (one billionth of a meter) but smaller than a micrometer (one millionth of a meter). This size range is the stage on which the exciting new research on submicroscopic and electronic and mechanical devices is being done. This research often crosses the boundary between physics and engineering, since engineering such tiny electronic components requires a firm grasp of quantum physics. Future applications for this work could include wonders such as microscopic robot surgeons that travel through the blood stream to repair clogged arteries,submicroscopic actuators and builders, and supercomputers that fit on the head of a pin. The world of future is being planned and built by physicists, engineers, and chemists working in the microscopic realm.

This book can be used as the main text in a course on mesoscopic physics or as a supplementary text in electronic devices, semiconductor devices, and condensed matter physics courses.

For this new edition, the author has substantially updated and modified the bibliography and the material on dephasing and noise in mesoscopic systems. A brief discussion of new nanosystems has been added.

Review:

"For researchers and graduate students in physics, chemistry, and electronic and optical engineering, Imry (physics, Weizmann Institute, Israel) explains concepts and tools to investigate systems that fall between the molecular and the bulk--generally a cluster of molecules that acts in many ways
like a large molecule but has certain qualities unique to the size range. In particular he shows how the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics and statistical physics appear, and are amenable, to theoretical clarification and experimental examination in mesoscopic systems."--SciTech Book News
