The 1D Heterostructure Tool is our first prototype of a 1D heterostructure design tool. It is currently limited to the effective mass bandstructure model and only material paramters for GaAs and AlGaAs are programmed into the interface. We consider this really an early release and plan to work on future improvements. Future improvements should contain:
  • mult-band models based on empirical tight binding
  • more materials

Improvements / modifications in subsequent releases:
  • 1.0.1 - The charge calculation for the low temperature case has been corrected.
  • 1.0.1 - Plotting of data has been improved and should now be much faster.
