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 ...
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 ...
I am writing rate equations for a nanophotonic system including three quantum dots. I need to calculate that radiative transition rates of exciton in ground state in those quantum dots. In the paper ...
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 ...
If we can already predicts accuratelly motion on molecular levels, what stops us from developing small robots to, for instance, navigate through our blood vessels looking for cancerous cells and ...
Quantum dots are quantum systems that are confined by definition on the nano scale. Why didn't people study similar systems on a much smaller scale, something as small as the dimension of the nucleus? ...
