Summary

This course will focus on the electron transport in semiconductors, with emphasis on the mesoscopic systems. The aim is to understand the transport of electrons in low dimensional systems, where even particles with statistics different than fermions and bosons will be discussed.

Content

  1. Preliminary concepts in Condensed matter physics
  2. Landauer-Buttiker formalism in one dimensional channel
  3. Transmission function, S-matrix and Green's functions
  4. IQHE, Basics, Classical Hall effect
  5. FQHE, Review of IQHE
  6. Berry Phase
  7. Recent/Relevant experimental works
