In solid-state physics, the electronic band structure of a solid describes ranges of energy that an electron is "forbidden" or "allowed" to have. It is a function of the diffraction of the quantum mechanical electron waves in the periodic crystal lattice with a specific crystal system and Bravais lattice. The band structure of a material determines several characteristics, in particular its electronic and optical properties. More information on Band structure can be found here.
Confusing simulation results

Dear Sir/ Madam This is Marolop again. I hope you will not get bored of answering my questions (^_^). I'm simulating germanium-based nanowire using band structure lab. I modulate the nanowire …
Simulation time for germanium-based nanowire using band structure lab
Dear all This is Marolop again. I'm simulating germanium-based nanowire with diameter of 10 nm using band structure lab. I've been running the simulation since yesterday and elapsed time has been …
What would be the electron effective mass of InAs in its electron valleys in X,Y,Z directions?
Open | Responses: 1
The default values in the Multi gate Nanowire tool for Si effective mass in Valley 1,2,3 in x,y,z directions are 0.19,0.19,0.98; 0.19,0.98,0.19; 0.98,0.19,0.19 respectively. Now if i am going to …
