<> This book provides a detailed description of the quantum confinement <> of electrons and phonons in semiconductor wells, superlattices and quantum <> wires, and shows how this affects their mutual interactions. The transition <> from microscopic to continuum models is discussed, emphasising the use of <> quasi-continuum theory to describe the confinement of optical phonons and <> electrons. The hybridisation of optical phonons and their interactions with <> electrons are treated in detail, as are other electron scattering mechanisms. <> The book concludes with an account of the electron distribution function in <> three-, two- and one-dimensional systems, in the presence of electrical or <> optical excitation. The book will be of great use to graduate students and <> researchers investigating low-dimensional semiconductor structures, as <> well as to those developing new devices based on such systems. <> <> Chapter Contents <> <> Introduction; <> 1.
