Nano­struc­tures II

Nan­o­phys­ics II (SuSe)

Lecturer: Prof.Dr. Johann-Peter Reithmaier

Con­tent of the lec­tures

The lectures consist of 3 SWh. The lectures are suitable for students from 8. or later semester of "Nanostructure Science Course" (required subject) and from 6. or later semester of "Physics Diploma" (elective course). Basic knowledge of Experimental Physics, Solid State Physics and Quantum mechanics are required.


The second part of the lectures (SS) continues the lectures form WS and discuss multiple examples the applications of nanostructures in different aspects

The next themen will be discussed:

  1. Introduction to the applications for the nanostructures
  2. Applications in the nanoelectronics

    • Josephson circuits
    • quantum transport devices
    • quantum computer
    • applications of the carbon nanotubes
    • molecular electronics
    • single molecule transistor
    • etc.
  3. Application of the nanostructures in the new data storage devices
    • magneto-optical data storage
    • phase changing materials
    • PCRAM
    • holographic methods
