[Slides] Quantum Mechanics: Periodic Potentials and Kronig-Penney ModelThe Kronig-Penney model is a simple approximation of a solid. The potential consists of a periodic arrangement of delta functions, square well or Coulomb well potentials. By means of epitaxial growth techniques artificial semiconductor superlattices can be realized, which behave very similar to the assumptions of the Kronig-Penny model. To get better understanding of the Kroinig-Penney model, we provide written text, slides, homework assignments and access to the Periodic Potential Lab and the ...

http://nanohub.org/resources/4851
This exercise teaches the students that in the case of strong coupling between the neighboring wells in square and Coulomb periodic potential wells electrons start to behave as free electrons and the gaps that open at the Brillouin zone boundaries become smaller and smaller (thus recovering the free particles dispersion relation).NSFNSFThis exercise teaches the students that in the case of strong coupling between the neighboring wells in square and Coulomb periodic potential wells electrons start to behave as free electrons and the gaps that open at the Brillouin zone boundaries become smaller and smaller (thus recovering the free particles dispersion relation).NSFNSFnoABACUS, AQME, band structure, nanoelectronics, periodic potentialsDragica Vasileska, Gerhard KlimeckDragica Vasileska, Gerhard KlimeckTeaching MaterialsWed, 02 Jul 2008 20:30:42 +0000/http://nanohub.org/site/resources/2008/07/04852/exercise_bandstructure.pdfFrom 1 well to 2 wells to 5 wells to periodic potentials: an Exercise

This exercise demonstrates that the interaction between the wells lifts the degeneracy of the quasi-bound 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.NSFNSFThis exercise demonstrates that the interaction between the wells lifts the degeneracy of the quasi-bound states and if in the limit we have infinite periodic potential it leads to formation of energy bands.
