7.5 ECTS credits
The course introduces the basic concepts and theories of low-dimensional physics with a focus on charge transport in structures on the nanometer scale. Starting from established theory in solid state physics and semiconductur physics, the course covers the effects that appear when the dimensions and length scales diminish, which makes the semiclassic theory of electron dynanmics no longer relevant.
Progressive specialisation: A1F (has second‐cycle course/s as entry requirements)
Education level: Master's level
Admission requirements: To be accepted to the course, completed courses in physics, 50 ECTS credits and mathematics, 35 ECTS credits, are needed, as well as approval on the following courses (or the equivalent): Nanoscience I, Physical Electronics, Quantum Physics II, and Solid State Physics.
Selection is usually based on your grade point average from upper secondary school or the number of credit points from previous university studies, or both.
