The armchair quantum wire - a macroscopic cable of well-aligned metallic nanotubes - was envisioned by the late Richard Smalley, a Rice University chemist who shared the Nobel Prize for his part in discovering the family of molecules that includes the carbon nanotube.
Instead of mining the Earth for a material with the appropriate material properties, we can just tune the size of the quantum wire or quantum dot to engineer materials with the desired properties.
Discussion begins with the basis for understanding the basic properties of semiconductors and gradually evolves to cover quantum structures- including single, multiple, and quantum wells and the properties of nanomaterial systems, such as quantum wires and dots.
