About the book

This book aims to be a self-contained collection of scholarly papers targeting an audience of practicing researchers, academics, PhD students and other scientists.
The themes ranged from zero-dimensional physics in quantum dots, molecules and nanoparticles through one-dimensional physics in nanowires and 1D system to more applied subjects like optoelectronics and materials science in thin films. Topics that are welcome: Surface physics, Heterostructures, Classical and Quantum Hall Effect, Spintronics, Superconductivity, Terahertz time-domain spectroscopy, and material dynamics. This book would form the basis for a better wide-spread understanding of the capabilities and limitations of each category of the advanced level of solid state physics, and may also suggest better, cheaper or alternative novel technologies to be considered for their applications.

About the editor

Jagannathan Thirumalai

SASTRA University

Dr. J. Thirumalai received his Ph.D. from Alagappa University, Karaikudi in 2010. He was awarded the Post-doctoral Fellowship from Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), Republic of Korea, in 2013. He worked as an Assistant Professor of Physics, B.S. Abdur Rahman University, Chennai, India (2011 to 2016). Currently, he is working as an Assistant Professor & Head of the Department of Physics, SASTRA Deemed University, Kumbakonam (T.N.), India. His research interests focus on luminescence, self-assembled nanomaterials, and thin-film optoelectronic devices. He has published more than 52 SCOPUS/ISI indexed papers, 8 book chapters, and he edited 5 books. He is serving as a member of several national and international societies like RSC, OSA, etc. Currently, he is acting as a principal investigator for a funded project towards the application of luminescence-based thin-film optoelectronic devices, funded by the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), India. As an expert in optoelectronics and nanotechnology area, he has been invited to examine several MSc and Ph.D. theses, invited to give a talk in various forums and to review papers for international and national journals.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
