Synopsis:

The subject is oriented on the present nanotechnologies in the connection with their electronic, photonic and spintronic applications. Quantum theory basics are used to explain the effects observed in nanostructures. Basic nanoelectronic structures are described with their possible applications. Modern computer methods and models, which are able to simulate the operation of nanoelectronic structures and which are the important tools for their design and optimization, are studied.
