Description

The first book devoted to a systematic consideration of electronic excitations and electronic energy transfer in organic
crystalline multilayers and organics based nanostructures(quantum wells, quantum wires,
quantum dots, microcavities). The ingenious combination of organic with inorganic materials in one and the
same hybrid structure is shown to give qualitatively new opto-electronic phenomena, potentially important for
applications in nonlinear optics, light emitting devices, photovoltaic cells, lasers and so on. The book will be useful not only
for physicists but also for chemists and biologists.To help the nonspecialist reader,
three Chapters which contain a tutorial and updated introduction to the physics of electronic excitations in organic
and inorganic solids have been included.

About G. Franco Bassani

After receiving his doctorate in physics from the University of Pavia in 1952, Franco Bassani had a brilliant career in various institutions in the United States and in Italy. As a research associate in the Department of Physics of the University of Illinois, then led by Professor Frederick Seitz, and later at Argonne National Laboratory, he developed a powerful method for band structure studies in semiconductors. As a professor of theoretical physics at the Universities of Messina, Pisa, and Rome and, currently, at Scuola Normale Superiore, he has established an internationally recognized school of condensed matter theory focussed on the optical and electronic properties of semiconductors and insulators, thus providing the scientific basis for their applications in optoelectronics. In his distinguished career, Professor Bassani has received many honors including honorary degrees from several European universities. He is a member of the prestigious "Academia Nazionale dei Lincei," and in 1979 was awarded the "Somaini" Prize by the Italian Physical Society. In 1994 he received the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Science from Purdue University for his innovative pioneering researches on the band structure and optical properties of semiconductors and for his intellectual leadership in condensed matter physics.
