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.

== Tool Verification ==
46 +
47 +
Verification of the PN-Junction 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.
