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...

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...

This material describes the derivation of the KronigPenney model for deltafunction periodic potentials.

Quantum Mechanics: Periodic Potentials and KronigPenney Model
09 Jul 2008   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The KronigPenney 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...
