Tags: band structure

Description

In solid-state physics, the electronic band structure of a solid describes ranges of energy that an electron is "forbidden" or "allowed" to have. It is a function of the diffraction of the quantum mechanical electron waves in the periodic crystal lattice with a specific crystal system and Bravais lattice. The band structure of a material determines several characteristics, in particular its electronic and optical properties. More information on Band structure can be found here.

  1. Bulk Bandstructure in MATLAB: Pseudopotential Method

    08 Feb 2010 | Contributor(s):: Muhanad Zaki

    This code (MATLAB) readily calculates and plots the bandstructure of Silicon (bulk) using the empirical pseudopotential method.Detailed instructions are in the compressed archive.I hope it would be a useful/interesting educational toolNote: If you are running this code in a non-Windows OS (e.g....

  2. ECE 539 Report: Study of two-dimensional Shrodinger-Poisson Solver

    01 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Fawad Hassan

    We solve the 2-Dimensional Shrodinger-Poisson system of equations using a self consistent scheme (like Gummel Iteration). We study a double gate Silicon Mosfet oriented in the 100 direction using the above setup. We assume a simple 6-valley bandstructure for Silicon.
