It is well known that we have got many kinds of quantized macro(meso)scopic harmonic oscillators or so in tiny mechanical systems. People are talking about cavity cooling and so on. However, it is ...
When a system has a dopant, how much does the Fermi level shift? For example, say a finite concentration of substitutional dopants replace some bulk atoms, and each has one extra electron. Ignore any ...
I am trying to understand the Landauer approach. Consider the setup: (left contact)-(conductor)-(right contact). For simplicity, the conductor is a 1d wire (the transverse part is not relevant for ...
Potential wells, such as infinite and finite potential well, have been the standard examples in quantum mechanics textbooks for tens of years. They started being only theoretical toy models but as ...
I'm reading about carbon nanotubes and how the momentum (lets call it $k_x$) is quantized along the circumferential direction and not along the cylindrical (call this $k_y$). I can follow the maths ...
