Abstract

Utilizing Piece-Wise Constant Potential Barriers Tool.

  • How does bandstructure occur?
  • How large does a repeated system have to be?
  • How does a finite superlattice compare to an infinite superlattice?

Exercises:

  1. Formation of Bandstructure in Finite Superlattices
  2. RTDs
