Abstract : During the period April 15, 1992 to April 14, 1993, research carried out by the Nanostructures Group in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Notre Dame was concerned with a variety of quantum transport in mesoscopic structures. This research was funded by the Air Force office of Scientific Research under Grant No. AFOSR-91-0211. The major issues examined included quantum transport in high magnetic fields and modulated channels. Coulomb- coupled quantum dot systems, transmission resonances and zeroes in resonant transport, self-consistent Hartree calculations of transport, lateral quantum wires an pn-junction formation, quantum magnetotransport in disordered systems, magnetoelectric states in quantum wires, anomalous magnetoresistance, electromigration, collision retardation and phonon effects in hot-electron transport, spin-polarized single electronics, single-particle lifetimes in quasi-1D structures, quantum transport experiments in metals, the mesoscopic photovoltaic effect, and new techniques for fabricating quantum structures in semiconductors.
