On this page you can find Hans Mooij‘s book titled QT the story of a research group at the origin of nano and quantum science in Delft 1971-2013.
Delft, at this time, is a very strong center of research in nanoscience and
quantum information technology. How that came about is an intriguing
question. The group called Quantum Transport (QT in abbreviation) played
a crucial role. Its origin can be traced back to 1971.
