Microscopic modeling of electronic quantum nanodevices reviewed in a Colloquium paper by D. Taj, R.C. Iotti and F. Rossi

Quantum devices represent an important topic of modern nanoscience, characterized by its multi-disciplinary flavor where condensed matter physics, quantum theory, and information technology merge into a unique body of knowledge. In this Colloquium paper Taj and co-workes review and discuss how to work out a microscopic modeling of state-of-the-art electronic quantum devices. The emphasis is on the description of energy-relaxation and decoherence phenomena. Finally, the authors propose an alternative formulation of the problem in terms of a generalized Fermi's Golden Rule.

We found this possibility of publication very well suited to our needs, the editors were always available with a very efficient follow-up of our demands. All the documents guaranteeing the peer reviewing and the authorizations of publication are clear. The only drawback is the visible contradiction between the author instructions for the word versions and the website for testing the PDF version, but even there the editors help us very quickly and efficiently.
