25 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): William R Frensley
IWCE 2015 presentation. the longstanding problem of spurious states in k·: ; p models of semiconductor nanostructures has been shown to be an artifact of the use of the centereddifference approximation to the gradient, and it has been shown that stable models may be constructed on...
Calculation of phonon transmission in Si/PtSi heterostructures
25 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jung Hyun Oh, Mincheol Shin
In this work we examine the suppression of phonon transport in another example, Si and SiPt heterostructures (3D). This heterostrucure is be- lieved to have the benefit that the electrical con- ductance can be kept high while the phonon prop- agation is suppressed due to the large acoustic...
