A good understanding of quantum dot (QD) self assembly not only has the potential to augment standard materials patterning technologies but also has applications in industrial nanostructure fabrications. Many observations and insights about self-assembled quantum [...]
Intermixing at heterointerfaces and the broadening of the SiGe layer in a Si/SiGe/Si single quantum well (SQW) structure can be detrimental to device performance. Thus it is important to develop predictive models for interdiffusion phenomena [...]

The current rapid development of nanotechnology has created a significant interest to predict the behavior of materials from the atomic to the engineering scales. However, it was found that such prediction is a very challenging [...]
A model describing the mobility tensor for electrons in strained Si layers as a function of strain is presented. It includes the effect of strain-induced splitting of the conduction band valleys in Si, inter-valley scattering, [...]
Spintronics is a new branch of electronics which involves the active control and manipulation of spin degrees of freedom in solid-state devices. Spin transport differs from charge transport as spin is a non-conserved quantity in [...]
