Why quantum dot simulation domain must contain multi-million atoms?
04 Jan 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad Usman
The InGaAs quantum dots obtained from the self-assembly growth process are heavily strained. The long-range strain and piezoelectric fields significantly modifies the electronic structure of the quantum dots. This imposes a critical constraint on the minimum size of the simulation domain to...
