6.1  Introduction

In previous chapters we studied advances in materials growth and nanostructure fabrication. In the case of electrons, we paid primary attention to the quantization of their energy in nanostructures. In fact, electronics relies upon electric signals, i.e., it deals with measurements of the electric current and voltage. Controlling and processing electric signals are the major functions of electronic devices. Correspondingly, our next task will be the study of transport of charge carriers, which are responsible for electric currents through nanostructures.

The possible ...
