Band Gap value
Closed  Responses: 1
For the default simple quantum dot, the bulk band gap is given as 1.43 eV (GaAs), and the value of Eg for the quantum dot is given as 0.18 eV. This is also the energy of the absorption...

Where did spheroidal geometry go?
Closed  Responses: 2
In the introductory material, a spheroid is one of the options for geometry. It appears that this is not longer an option in the current version, is there a reason for that?

Confusion with bandgap
Closed  Responses: 0
The default case shows a bandgap between the ground and the first excited states (less than 1 eV for GaAs!). This is confusing, since by bandgap students usually understand the difference...

I compared a free electron in a 10nm x 10nm x 10nm closed box with an analytical formula and got a very different result
Closed  Responses: 3
I expect to get 0.011eV for the ground state quantization energy.
The tool gives me 0.040eV.
Is it a problem in my interpretation of the results or the tool is wrong?
