Research Tutorial

Resonant Transport in Semiconductor Quantum Structures

WIAS Berlin, September 24, 2005

DFG Research Center Matheon


The Matheon research group D4 Quantum mechanical and macroscopic models for optoelectronic devices organizes the research tutorial Resonant Transport in Semiconductor Quantum Structures at the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics.

Special Guests

Anton Arnold (Vienna)
Irene Gamba (Austin, TX)
Francis Nier (Rennes)


The focus of the workshop is on mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of resonant transport in semiconductor quantum structures.

The research tutorial's format will be on the presentation of a problem from recent research, followed by hands-on seminars on the subject. In the seminars a mixed group of scientist from Matheon, an industrial research lab, and the special guests will work on the problem. At the end of the workshop an open discussion with active and attending participants provides for comparing different approaches and methodology.

The goal of the research tutorial is knowledge raising and interaction of scientists working in mathematics, physics, and engineering on problems which are linked to the same industrial application. We would like to enhance cooperation within Matheon and with the Joint Lab of the Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics GmbH Frankfurt/Oder and the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus.


The workshop will take place on Saturday 10:30am - 5pm in the Erhard-Schmidt lecture room at the Weierstrass Institute.

The lecture room is equipped with a blackboard, two overhead projectors, and a beamer with a laptop (Windows system).


Deadline: September 16, 2005
