An Introduction to Semiconductors and Quantum Confinement

In this thesis, atomically imperfect structures will be studied to investigate if such systems can provide adequate variation for unique identification, as the sensitive effects of quantum confinement exhibited in these low-dimensional structures is directly related to the order on this scale. Utilising the measurement of a quantum effect amplifies the influence of these atomic-scale defects, and provides a simple way to measure them simply and reliably. This work will lay the foundations for UNOs and PUFs comprising of such structures to be developed.
