  1. ABACUS Exercise: Bandstructure – Kronig-Penney Model and Tight-Binding Exercise

    20 Jul 2010 | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    The objective of this exercise is to start with the simple Kronig-Penney model and understand formations of bands and gaps in the dispersion relation that describes the motion of carriers in 1D periodic potentials. The second exercise examines the behavior of the bands at the Brillouin zone...

    Worked Examples for Periodic Potential Lab

  3. Periodic Potential Lab: First-Time User Guide

    07 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Abhijeet Paul, Benjamin P Haley, Gerhard Klimeck, SungGeun Kim, Lynn Zentner

    This document provides guidance to first-time users of the Periodic Potential Lab tool. It offers basic information about solutions to the Schröedinger Equation in case of periodic potential in 1 dimension (1D). This document also contains suggested exercises to help users run the tool and...

  4. Periodic Potentials and the Kronig-Penney Model

    01 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska

    This material describes the derivation of the Kronig-Penney model for delta-function periodic potentials.

  5. Periodic Potentials Exercise

    15 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck, Parijat Sengupta, Dragica Vasileska

    In this exercise, various calculations of the electronic band structure of a one-dimensional crystal are performed with the Kronig-Penney (KP) model. This model has an analytical solution and therefore allows for simple calculations. More realistic models always require extensive numeric...

  6. Semiconductor Device Education Material

    28 Jan 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck

    This page has moved to "a Wiki page format" When we hear the words, semiconductor device, we may think first of the transistors in PCs or video game consoles, but transistors are the basic component in all of the electronic devices we use in our daily lives. Electronic systems are...
