De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Thanks for 2000 views

When I have started the blog, I did not really counted on any noticeable audience. Well, the blog goes about boring and rather specific stuff, mostly it is a technical dairy of my lectures. I am flattered with the fact that people find it (and perhaps the lectures) interesting. Thank you, your attention is very motivating both for writting the blog and for lecturing, and, let me put it frankly, just for living this life through.

Of course, I’d love to receive more feedback in the form of comments:)   

Fifth lecture quantum transport

was a change of the topic: we have departed from the scattered quantum waves and entered the world of Coulomb blockade.  I have stressed from very beginning that this is perhaps a boring world, although I myself do not think so. However, I am afraid I was boring at times. Perhaps it was just a matter of mood.

The slides of the lecture, especially the diagramms in the slides are better be updated to match the book. I did not to it this time to avoid, according to the mechanism described earlier, a complete rewritting of the lecture. I would do it next year.

This was I guess the majour problem while taking about co-tunneling. I was trying to explain a cartoon, while the sildes give formulas. That gave this discrepancy between the speech and visual and was bad for explanation.
