Newly developed semiconductor microstructures can now guide light and electrons resulting in important consequences for state-of-the-art electronic and photonic devices. This volume introduces a new generation of epitaxial microstructures. Special emphasis has been given to atomic control during growth and the interrelationship between the atomic arrangements and the properties of the structures.
* Atomic-level control of semiconductor microstructures
* Molecular beam epitaxy, metal-organic chemical vapor deposition
* Quantum wells and quantum wires
* Lasers, photon(IR)detectors, heterostructure transistors
