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.
Tunneling Through Triangular Barrier: an Exercise for PCPBT
out of 5 stars
23 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

From 1 well to 2 wells to 5 wells to periodic potentials: an Exercise
02 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
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...
