From Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor
This is not intended to be a representative bibliography, just a list of references that could help readers broaden their understanding of the material presented herein, which is a very small subset of the vast literature in the field.
This book has grown out of a graduate course (and recently its undergraduate version) that I have been teaching for a number of years. The reader may find it useful to view the videostreamed course lectures, which are publicly available through the web. Information should be available at my website
and through the nanohub at www.nanohub.org.
This chapter and the Appendix have been adapted from Datta (2004). With corrections.
The example used to illustrate the importance of the potential profile in determining the current voltage characteristics in Section 1.4 (Figs. 1.4.2, 1.4.3) is motivated by the experiments discussed in
Datta S., Tian W., Hong S., Reifenberger R., Henderson J., and Kubiak C. P. (1997). STM current voltage characteristics of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). Phys. Rev. Lett., 79, 2530.
We will not be discussing the Coulomb blockade regime in this book (other than Sections 1.5 and 3.4). For further reading, see for example, Bonet et al. (2002) and:
