Abstract:

In the course of the reported project we studied transport and thermodynamic properties of ultra-small electronic microstructures, known as mesoscopic, using various theoretical approaches and techniques. The main goal of this research is the improved characterization of and understanding of limitations on quantum electronic devices. We obtained several important results and breakthroughs in our analysis of hopping conduction in Si-MOSFETs, far infra-red absorption in metal-insulator composites, and orbital magnetism of metals and quantum dots in semiconductor heterostructures.
