Abstract : The NATO Advanced Research Workshop on 'Frontiers of Optical Phenomena in Semiconductor Structures of Reduced Dimensions provided a forum in which experimental and theoretical physicists discussed and evaluated recent developments in the optical research of the exciting new phenomena that occur in the electron systems of semiconductor nanostructures. The topics of principal interest to the participants included the integral and fractional quantum Hall effects, the nonlinear optics of low dimensional electron systems, the optical responses associated with electrons in quantum wires and dots and the optical characterization of electron tunneling in ultra-small structures. We also had informative presentations on recent developments in the studies of optically active porous silicon and the optical properties of C60 molecules.
