If you need a book that relates the core principles of quantum mechanics to modern applications in engineering, physics, and nanotechnology, this is it. Students will appreciate the book's applied emphasis, which illustrates theoretical concepts with examples of nanostructured materials, optics, and semiconductor devices. The many worked examples and more than 160 homework problems help students to problem solve and to practise applications of theory. Without assuming a prior knowledge of high-level physics or classical mechanics, the text introduces Schrodinger's equation, operators, and approximation methods. Systems, including the hydrogen atom and crystalline materials, are analyzed in detail. More advanced subjects, such as density matrices, quantum optics, and quantum information, are also covered. Practical applications and algorithms for the computational analysis of simple structures make this an ideal introduction to quantum mechanics for students of engineering, physics, nanotechnology, and other disciplines.

Author Biography - David A. B. Miller

David A. B. Miller received the B.Sc. degree from St Andrews University, and, in 1979, the Ph.D. degree from Heriot-Watt University, both in Physics. He was with Bell Laboratories from 1981 to 1996, as a department head from 1987, latterly of the Advanced Photonics Research Department. He is currently the W. M. Keck Professor of Electrical Engineering, the Director of the Solid State and Photonics Laboratory, and a Co-Director of the Stanford Photonics Research Center at Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA. His research interests include physics and devices in nanophotonics, nanometallics, and quantum-well optoelectronics, and fundamentals and applications of optics in information sensing, switching, and processing. He has published more than 200 scientific papers, holds 62 patents, is a Fellow of OSA, IEEE, APS, and the Royal Societies of Edinburgh and London, holds honorary degrees from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Heriot-Watt University, and has received numerous awards.
