AQME assembles a set of nanoHUB tools that we believe are of immediate interest for the teaching of quantum mechanics class for both Engineers and Physicists. Users no longer have to search the nanoHUB to find the appropriate applications for this particular purpose. This curated page provides a “on-stop-shop” access to associated materials such as homework or project assignments.
AQME: SCHRED Assignment – Quantum Confinement
13 Jul 2011 | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This assignment teaches the students about quantum confinement in MOS capacitors.
Exercise: Resonant Tunneling Diode
This is an exercise for resonant tunneling diode.
Cosine Bands: an Exercise for PCPBT
out of 5 stars
21 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck, Dragica Vasileska
This exercise demonstrates the formation of cosine bands as we increase the number of wells in the n-well structure.
Bulk Monte Carlo Lab:Scattering Rates for Parabolic vs. Non-Parabolic Bands: an Exercise
20 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise helps the students learn the importance of the non-parabolic band approximation for large carrier energies.
Uniform versus delta doping in 1D heterostructures: an Exercise
15 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise is designed to demonstrate that delta doping leads to larger sheet electron density in the channel and it also allows for better control of the charge density in the channel region of High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMTs).
Parallel Conduction Channel: an Exercise for 1D Heterostructure Lab
This exercise uses the 1-D Heterostructure Lab, which demonstrates that adding more dopants in the buffer layer becomes ineffective after certain critical doping density. Beyond this critical doping density, additional dopants practically fill in the parallel conduction channel that sits in the...
Piece-Wise Constant Potential Barriers Tool
30 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Xufeng Wang, Samarth Agarwal, Gerhard Klimeck, Dragica Vasileska, Mathieu Luisier, Jean Michel D Sellier
Transmission and the reflection coefficient of a five, seven, nine, eleven and 2n-segment piece-wise constant potential energy profile
Bulk Band Structure: a Simulation Exercise
03 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This simulation exercise teaches the students about band structure of indirect and direct bandgap materials, the optical gaps, the concept of the effective mass and the influence of spin-orbit coupling on the valence bandstructure.NSF
Quantum Mechanics for Engineers: Course Assignments
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This set of exercises should help the students better understand the basic principles of quantum mechanics as applied to engineering problems. Introductory concepts in Quantum Mechanics Postulates of Quantum Mechanics Wavepackets Quantum-Mechanical Reflections Quantum-Mechanical Reflections in...
Stationary Perturbation Theory: an Exercise for PCPBT
28 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise allows us to test the first and second order stationary perturbation theory and explain mathematically the shift in the energies due to a small perturbation in a quantum well.www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF
Tunneling Through Triangular Barrier: an Exercise for PCPBT
23 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise teaches the users that a very good result can be obtained when the triangular barrier is approximated with 11 segment piece-wise constant potential barrier steps.www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF
Quantum Mechanics: Hydrogen Atom
09 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The solution of the Schrödinger equation (wave equations) for the hydrogen atom uses the fact that the Coulomb potential produced by the nucleus is isotropic (it is radially symmetric in space and only depends on the distance to the nucleus). Although the resulting energy eigenfunctions (the...
Quantum Mechanics for Engineers: Podcasts
07 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck, David K. Ferry
This course will introduce the students to the basic concepts and postulates of quantum mechanics. Examples will include simple systems such as particle in an infinite and finite well, 1D and 2D harmonic oscillator and tunneling. Numerous approximation techniques, such as WKB method,...
