Road to Quantum Boxes
Languages of publication
Quantum wells and superlattices have evolved over the last two decades to become a prominent multi-disciplinary field in condensed matter science. From the first observation of resonant tunneling to the recent realization of the quantum box, in this work we provide a summary description of the historical development of the field, known today as quantum structures. The focus is on the physics aspect with emphasis on important experimental observations that collectively define the field and set its direction of development.
