"This book should be of considerable interest to scientists and engineers working in the area of quantum structure." --PHYSICS IN CANADA "This is an excellent introductory text aimed at graduate students and new researchers entering the field of semiconductor heterostructure." --SEMICONDUCTOR, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY "This book is an excellent introduction to the field of low-dimensional semiconductor structures, and also contains a comprehensive bibliography. It can be highly recommended to students and to solid state and materials scientists entering this field." --SEMICONDUCTOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY "...the authors have produced a good combination of basic physics and applications at the graduate level. For many scientists working with quantum semiconductor structures it will serve as a useful handbook that should make a mass of original papers redundant." --PHYSICS WORLD "It will be essential reading for postgraduate research students entering this field and also for those studying university courses in physics and electronic engineering. Experienced researchers will also find many of the explanations illuminating and the bibliography an excellent source of references." --NATURE "Claude Weisbuch and Borge Vinter, two very distinguished research scientists in this new, expanding field, have compiled a useful survey book on this subject. Quantum Semiconductor Structures can be viewed as a concise introduction to the many underlying physical concepts and new device structures that have evolved in this area over the past 20 years....This volume will certainly be of interest and use to a wide audience....The book can certainly serve as a useful survey of quantum semiconductor devices. Because its comprehensive references point the reader to most of the important literature, the book provides an invaluable general reference to practioners in the area....It is an important work and will certainly be an invalubale reference for any researcher in quantum semiconductor structures." --PHYSICS TODAY "The author does a masterful job of balancing the material for both the student and expert, who may be surprised at how much can be learned from this review." --IEEE CIRCUITS AND DEVICES "It provides an excellent introduction for scientists entering the field." --MRS BULLETIN
