6  +  By completing the Bound States Calculation Lab in [[Resource(bsclab)]], users will be able to: a) understand the concept of bound states, b) the meaning of the eigenvalues and the eigenvectors, and c) the form of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors for rectangular, parabolic and triangular confinement.


7  +  
8  +  
9  +  The specific objectives of the Bound States Calculation Lab are:

15  +  == Recommended Reading ==


16  +  
17  +  Users who are new to the concept of bound states and solution of the Schrodinger equation for bound states should consult the following resources:

33  +  
34  +  * [[Resource(9094)]] (physical, analytical model)


35  +

45  +  == Tool Verification ==


46  +  
47  +  Verification of the PNJunction tool is done by comparison of the


48  +  simulation results for the electric field in equilibrium with the depletion


49  +  charge approximation results. This verification process can be done only


50  +  while running the tool, as it superimposes the depletion charge


51  +  approximation results.
