Quantum dots are small devices that contain a tiny droplet of free electrons fabricated in semiconductor materials; they act much like atoms, but can be connected to electrodes so their atom-like behavior can be studied. Physicists, materials scientists, electronics researchers, and others present information on them that they have created in their own laboratories or have compiled from literature in the field. Their topics include theory and methods of few-electron semiconductors quantum dots in a magnetic field, the numerical modelling of semiconductor quantum dot light emitters for fiber optic communication and sensing, quantum dots in medicinal chemistry and drug development, sub-diffraction quantum dot waveguides, a unified description of resonance and decay phenomena in quantum dots, studying quantum dots using effective-mass envelope function theory, and the application of quantum dots in organic memory devices.
