7.1  Introduction

Now, we begin our analysis of novel developments in electronics that have resulted from the use of nanostructures in modern electronic devices. Importantly, the attributes of nanotechnology make it possible to pursue both devices with smaller dimensional scales and novel types of device. Though the ongoing trend of miniaturization in electronics is extremely important, the unique properties of electrons in nanostructures give rise to novel electrical and optical effects, and open the way to new device concepts. The electric current and voltage in a device are determined by ...
