Essential Classical Mechanics for Device Physics

A F J Levi


Continued advances in the precision manufacturing of new structures at the nanometer scale have provided unique opportunities for device physics. This book sets out to summarize those elements of classical mechanics most applicable for scientists and engineers studying device physics. Supplementary MATLAB® materials are available for all figures generated numerically.

About Editors

Anthony Levi is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Physics at the University of Southern California (USC). He joined USC in 1993 after working for 10 years at AT&T Bell Laboratories. He invented hot electron spectroscopy and discovered ballistic electron transport in heterostructure bipolar transistors. He also created the first microdisk laser. His current research includes optimal design of high-performance electronic and photonic systems, RF photonics, and very small lasers. He holds 17 US patents and is the author of the book Applied Quantum Mechanics.
