4b. part II (6 lectures, week II): "Charge transport in low dimensional structures",  Vittorio Romano (UniversitÓ di Catania) 

Classes will be held from Monday to Saturday. Some lectures notes will be available on the first day of the school. Each participant must attend, at least, two courses without interruption and for the entire duration of the school, unless exceptional and justified reasons.
