Quantum Dots and Nanowires provides coverage on various emerging aspects of quantum dots and nanowires. This book covers recent advances in physical and chemical synthetic approaches, processing and fabrication of semiconductor quantum-dot arrays, superlattices, self-assemblies, nanowires, nanotubes and nanobelts, computational modeling approaches, spectroscopic characterization, their unique electrical, optical, magnetic and physical properties associated with size effect, transport phenomena, quantum computing, and other potential applications.
