AQME assembles a set of nanoHUB tools that we believe are of immediate interest for the teaching of quantum mechanics class for both Engineers and Physicists. Users no longer have to search the nanoHUB to find the appropriate applications for this particular purpose. This curated page provides a “on-stop-shop” access to associated materials such as homework or project assignments.

Energy Bands as a Function of the Geometry of the n-Well Potential: an Exercise
05 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Explores the position and the width of the bands as a function of the 10-barrier potential parameters.NSF
Bound States Calculation Description
05 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska
These lectures describe the calculation of the bound states in an infinite potential well, finite potential well and triangular well approximation. At the end, shooting method, that is used to numerically solve the 1D Schrodinger equation, is briefly described.visit www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF
Harmonic Oscillator Problem
These materials describe the solution of the 1D Schrodinger equation for harmonic potential using the brute-force and the operator approach.visit www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF
Bound States Calculation: an Exercise
06 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The problems in this exercise use the Bound States Calculation Lab to calculate bound states in an infinite square well, finite square well and triangular potential. Students also have to compare simulated values with analytical results.Dragica Vasileska: Lecture notes on Quantum Mechanics...
Exercise: Brute-force approach applied to harmonic oscillator problem and Coulomb potential in 1D
These exercises teach the students the brute-force approach for calculating bound states in harmonic and Coulomb potential.Dragica Vasileska lecture notes on Quantum Mechanics (www.eas.asu.edu/~vasilesk)NSF
Exercise: Operator Approach to Harmonic Oscillator Problem
This exercise teaches the students the operator approach to solving the harmonic oscillator problem.Dragica Vasileska web site: www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF
Schred: Exercise 1
This exercise illustrates basic SCHRED capabilities for modeling MOS capacitors and also illustrates how the bound states distribution in energy changes with doping. The average distance of the carriers calculated semi-classically and quantum-mechanically is also examined since it is important...
Towards Quantum Mechanics

Quantum-Mechanical Reflections in Nanodevices: an Exercise
02 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise points out to the fact that quantum-mechanical reflections are going to be significant in nanoscale devices and proper modeling of these device structures must take into consideration the quantum-mechanical reflections.NSF, ONRDragica Vasileska personal web-site...
Periodic Potentials and Bandstructure: an Exercise
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...
