The lectures of this international school were designed to
present overviewsof the basic concepts, current research
and research developments of semiconductor quantum devices
not only to young scientists, but also to graduate and
postgraduate students. This book provides the basic
fundamentals helpful for the future work of young
researchers: thebasic principles of the different growth
methods and of the structural, electrical and optical
properties of semiconductor heterostructures.
Thebook covers a wide range of the scientific research in
the field of semiconductor quantum devices and focuses on
links between physics and technology. Particular relevance
is given to the technology, fabrication andphysics of
electronic and opto-electronic devices.
