  1. 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...
