Quantum Mechanics: Landauer's Formula
08 Jul 2008  Series  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
When a metallic nanojunction between two macroscopic electrodes is connected to a battery, electrical current flows across it. The battery provides, and maintains, the charge imbalance between the electrode surfaces needed to sustain steadystate conduction in the junction. This static...

Quantum Mechanics: Periodic Potentials and KronigPenney Model
09 Jul 2008  Series  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The KronigPenney 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...

Quantum Mechanics: Time Independent Schrodinger Wave Equation
07 Jul 2008  Series  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
In physics, especially quantum mechanics, the Schrödinger equation is an equation that describes how the quantum state of a physical system changes in time. It is as central to quantum mechanics as Newton's laws are to classical mechanics.In the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics, the...
