About the Author

Tero Heikkila is a grantee of the European Research Council


This is an excellent textbook on nanoelectronics, with clear explanations of the mesoscopic physics combined with discussions of nanoscale systems of current interest (e.g. Cooper pair boxes, NEMs). There is a good balance of physics, diagrams, and mathematical detail. It will be a valuable textbook for graduate students starting in the field of nanoelectronics. * Derek Lee, Imperial College London *
This textbook provides an intermediate-level introduction to the very rich physics of nanoelectronics. The book treats in a balanced way the semi-classical and quantum transport regimes, and bridges up-to-date research topics, such as molecular electronics, graphene, NEMS, and full-counting statistics, with more traditional material. All theory is presented in a didactic way with clear focus on the experiments and physics without the use of heavy mathematical machinery. It is suited for a lecture course as well as for self-study with extensive references and starting points for further studies, and plenty of exercises. * Mads Brandbyge, Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology, Technical University of Denmark *
