"This book presents a combination of quantum physics and nanotechnology which is appealing and quite distinctive. The author has a huge amount of experience in presenting the material in the book to an undergraduate audience, and in working with the same range of ideas in a research context. The nature of the presentation of the material reflects this experience." - Richard Phillips, University of Cambridge
"Duncan Steel has written an excellent textbook for intermediate engineering students, based on his experience in teaching classes in the area of quantum mechanics for engineers and in mentoring research students in the basic physics issues in quantum technology. His selection of topics is right on the mark. His consideration for the accessibility by the students is detailed, valuable and quite rare. The book has a lot of appeal. " - Lu J. Sham, University of California at San Diego
