Noise and Fluctuations Control in Electronic Devices is the first single reference source to bring together the latest aspects of noise research for a wide range of multidisciplinary audiences. The goal of this book is to give an update of state-of-the-art in this interdisciplinary field, while focusing on new trends in electronic device noise research. Such new trends include investigation of noise in electronic devices based on novel materials, effects of the downscaling on the device noise performance, fluctuations and noise control in nanodevices, effective methods of noise control and suppression, etc. In addition, the book presents a historic overview of the development of the kinetic theory of fluctuation, essential for understanding of the present state-of-the art. This book contains 18 state-of-the-art review chapters written by 33 internationally renowned experts from 15 countries. This book has about 1,500 bibliographical citations and hundreds of illustrations, figures, tables and equations. This book is a definite reference source for students, scientists, engineers, and specialists both in academia and industry working in such different fields as electronic and optoelectronic devices, electrical and electronic engineering, solid-state physics, nanotechnology, wireless communication, telecommunication, and semiconductor device technology.
