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...

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...
