From 1 well to 2 wells to 5 wells to periodic potentials: an Exercise
02 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise demonstrates that the interaction between the wells lifts the degeneracy of the quasibound states and if in the limit we have infinite periodic potential it leads to formation of energy bands. Notice that when the interaction is less strong the energy levels are more sharp and the width of the bands is smaller.
