International Symposium on

Carrier Interactions in
Mesoscopic Systems

13-14 February, 2001

NTT Atsugi R & D Center

Sponsored by NEDO, CREST (JST), and NTT BRL


Scope and Topics

The symposium is devoted to the physics, devices, and technologies accessible by layer and nano structures, with special emphasis on the effects of carrier interactions. We mainly consider semiconductor based systems. However, phenomena related to carrier interactions in other solid state systems, such as superconductors are also included. Contributions on quantum information processing based on carrier interactions in solids are also welcome.
