Introduction to Quantum Transport
Start Date:July 5, 2021
- Explain tight-binding model, reciprocal lattice and evaluate dispersion relation
- Explain NEGF equations, dephasing, quantum point contact and evaluate quantities like the transmission, the self-energy and spectral functions
- Use Pauli spin matrices and evaluate quantities like spin density
This course is intended to be broadly accessible to students in any branch of science or engineering who would like to learn about the full quantum statistical mechanical framework for describing the flow of electrons in solid-state electronic devices.
Weekly topics: 1 & 2, Schrodinger Equation; 3 & 4, Contact-ing Schrodinger & Examples; 5, Spin Transport.
