   states in quantum dots of arbitrary shape.

Sponsors:

Air Force Office of Scientific Research
Physics & Electronics Directorate


Project Duration: 2000-2003

Joint STTR project with industry

This project aims at investigation of coherent phonon transport in semiconductor nanostructures, acoustic phonon annihilation processes and carrier - phonon scattering suppression. The final goal is to improve excess heat removal from the device active area.
