About these proceedings


Owing to new physical, technological, and device concepts of low-dimensionalelectronic systems, the physics and fabrication of quasi-zero, one- and two-dimensional systems are rapidly growing fields. The contributions presented in this volume cover results of nanostructure fabrication including recently developed techniques, for example, tunneling probe techniques and molecular beam epitaxy, quantum transport including the integer and fractional quantum Hall effect, optical and transport studies of the two-dimensional Wigner solid, phonon studies of low-dimensional systems, and Si/SiGe heterostructures and superlattices. To the readers new in the field this volume gives a comprehensive introduction and for the experts it is an update of their knowledge and a great help for decisions about future research activities.
