Abstract:We discuss the effect of atomic disorder on electronic systems that operate in either reduced dimension or by quantum-mechanical transport. Systems include high electron mobility transistors, tunnel diodes, superconductors, multiquantum well infrared and ultraviolet detectors, and superlattice devices. In most cases, quantum mechanics and/or reduced dimension produces an unconventional response to disorder, rendering some devices more sensitive to disorder, and other devices more tolerant.
