By completing the [[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.
+
By completing the [[Resource(rtdnegf)]], users will be able to: a) understand the principle of operation of resonant tunneling diode, b) the meaning of the quasibound states, resonant and non-resonant tunneling and c) the concept of quantum interference which is the basis for the formation of quasi-bound states and the operation of a Resonant Tunneling Diode.
