Abstract : This report details the result of theoretical investigation carried out to study hot electron effects and magneto-optical properties of quantum wires. Many surprising features emerged, such as the quenching of acoustic phonon interaction by a magnetic field, an anomalous electron cooling effect, a temperature inversion effect, the possibility of a negative transport lifetime, giant enhancements in the second and third order optical nonlinearities in a quantum wire, and the possibility of efficient low loss waveguiding of polaritons in arrays of quantum wires.
