  1. Comparison of PCPBT Lab and Periodic Potential Lab

    10 Aug 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Abhijeet Paul, Samarth Agarwal, Gerhard Klimeck, Junzhe Geng

    This small presentation provides information about the comparison performed for quantum wells made of GaAs and InAs in two different tools. This has been done to benchmark the results from completely two different sets of tools and validate the obtained results. In this presentation we provide...

  2. Periodic Potential Lab Worked Examples

    Worked Examples for Periodic Potential Lab

  3. Periodic Potentials and Bandstructure: an Exercise

    02 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    This exercise teaches the students that in the case of strong coupling between the neighboring wells in square and Coulomb periodic potential wells electrons start to behave as free electrons and the gaps that open at the Brillouin zone boundaries become smaller and smaller (thus recovering the...

  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. Quantum Mechanics: Periodic Potentials and Kronig-Penney Model

    09 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    The Kronig-Penney model is a simple approximation of a solid. The potential consists of a periodic arrangement of delta functions, square well or Coulomb well potentials. By means of epitaxial growth techniques artificial semiconductor superlattices can be realized, which behave very similar to...
