The lecture will focus on experiments on the quantum level with
semiconductor structures. In this context quantized transport, spin
properties, spin manipulations and optical phenomena will be presented.
The experiments will largely cover self-assembled InAs quantum dots as a
model system of an artificial atom. Exemplarily spin transport in
self-assembled InAs quantum dots and the methods of optical readout of
the sucessful spin initialization will be presented. Applications of the
different devices with new functionality will be discussed. Applied
quantum mechanics on nanostructured devices will be the central scope in
The students will gain insight in modern quantum experiments with semiconductor heterostructures. Applied quantum mechanics, transport phenomena, spin phenomena and (classical) electrostatics will be discovered exemplarily on semiconductor devices.
