Goals

This lecture introduces the students to various physical aspects required for understanding the behaviour of nanostructures and nanosystems: ballistics elctron transport, quantum coherent electron transport, confining effects upon structures and electronic or optical properties; graphene and carbon nanotubes, etc. The last part describes the forces involved at the nanoscale.
