Abstract:Finally, a full-band approach for the solution of Schrodinger's equation based on Fast Fourier Transforms is described. Using this simulation method, it becomes possible to solve Schrodinger's equation in the one band approximation for arbitrary band structures, putting a more complete description of high energy states and realistic temperatures within reach. Two example applications concerning non-parabolic effects in silicon quantum structures are presented, a MOS quantum capacitor and a MOS quantum cavity. Future directions for further extending this numerical method are discussed.
