Spins in Optically Active Quantum Dots: Concepts and Methods
Following an introduction, this monograph deals with optically active quantum dots and their integration into electro-optical devices, before looking at the theory of quantum confined states and quantum dots interacting with the radiation field. Final chapters cover spin-spin interaction in quantum dots as well as spin and charge states, showing how to use single spins for break-through quantum computation. A conclusion and outlook round off the volume.
The result is a primer providing the essential basic knowledge necessary for young researchers entering the field, as well as semiconductor and theoretical physicists, PhD students in physics and material sciences, electrical engineers and materials scientists.

Hubert Krenner received his PhD at the Walter Schottky Institute of the Technische Universität München in the groups of Gerhard Abstreiter and Jonathan Finley. After a two year stay as a Feodor Lynen Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in the group of Pierre Petroff at the University of California, Santa Barbara, he moved to the Universität Augsburg where he continues his work on control and manipulation of spin and charge excitations in optically active nanostructures.
Jesse Berezovsky received his PhD at the University of California, Santa Barbara in the group of David Awschalom, and is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard University. His research has focused on optically probing spin dynamics in nanocrystal quantum dots, as well as developing techniques for the optical readout and ultrafast manipulation of single spins in a quantum dot.
