Tunneling Through Triangular Barrier: an Exercise for PCPBT
0.0 out of 5 stars
23 Jul 2008 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise teaches the users that a very good result can be obtained when the triangular barrier is approximated with 11 segment piece-wise constant potential barrier...
Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 26: Life Beyond DFT -- Computational Methods for Electron Correlations, Excitations, and Tunneling Transport
5.0 out of 5 stars
16 May 2008 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Jeffrey B. Neaton
In this lecture, we provide a brief introduction to "beyond DFT" methods for studying excited state properties, optical properties, and transport properties. We discuss how the GW approximation...
