Quantum Transport


Lecture details

The summer semester is held as a digital semester. In principle, as agreed by the universities in North Rhine-Westphalia, all courses that can be offered remotely will take place online for the entire summer semester.

The lecture will be given by Prof. Hassler.


  • Drude transport
  • Anderson localization
  • Landauer-Büttiker formula for conductivity
  • Aharonov-Bohm effect
  • Weak-localization and universal conductance fluctuations
  • Coulomb blockade
  • Shot noise and thermal noise
  • Quantum Hall effect


  • Quantum mechanics
  • Statistical mechanics

Learning goal:

The students know the underlying facts of how quantum interference influences the transport of electrons in disordered systems. They have a basic understanding of how the effects of interactions on transport in small quantum systems. They understand the implications that the quantization of the electric charge has on measurable response functions.
