Teaching Materials (1-7 of 7)

  1. Tunneling

    30 Jul 2011 | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    This set of slides describes the quantum-mechanical process for tunneling and how it is accounted for in modeling semiconductor devices. We explain WKB approximation, transfer matrix approach and the Tsu-Esaki formula for the calculation of the current.

  2. K-12: Introduction to Quantum Wells

    24 Nov 2008 | | Contributor(s):: David Beck, Mark M Budnik

    A lesson plan for a 20-30 minute exercise for 4th and 5th grade Gifted and Talented students to explore the concept of quantum wells. The objectives of the lesson are:* The students will be able to understand the basic functions and concepts of quantum wells and tunneling.* Students will be able...

  3. Tunneling Through Triangular Barrier: an Exercise for PCPBT

    23 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    This exercise teaches the users that a very good result can be obtained when the triangular barrier is approximated with 11 segment piece-wise constant potential barrier steps.www.eas.asu.edu/~vasileskNSF

  6. Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 26: Life Beyond DFT -- Computational Methods for Electron Correlations, Excitations, and Tunneling Transport

    16 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey B. Neaton

    In this lecture, we provide a brief introduction to "beyond DFT" methods for studying excited state properties, optical properties, and transport properties. We discuss how the GW approximation to the self-energy corrects the quasiparticle excitations energies predicted by Kohn-Sham DFT. For...

  7. Finite Height Quantum Well: an Exercise for Band Structure

    31 Jan 2008 | | Contributor(s):: David K. Ferry

    Use the Resonant Tunneling Diodes simulation tool on nanoHUB to explore the effects of finite height quantum wells.Looking at a 2 barrier device, 300 K, no bias, other standard variables, and 3 nm thick barriers and a 7 nm quantum well, determine the energies of the two lowest quasi-bound states.
