Tuning the Piezoelectric Fields in Quantum Dots: Microscopic Description of Dots Grown on (N11) Surfaces
Di Carlo A
MetadataShow full item record
We theoretically investigated the elastic deformation and piezoelectric field in InAs quantum dots grown on (N11) GaAs substrates. Particular attention was given to the influence of the substrate orientation on both the volume deformation of the dot and the strain-induced piezoelectric field. The piezoelectric effects are enhanced by the lower symmetry growth directions. The influence of the piezoelectric fields on the electron and hole ground states for a (N11) quantum dot was also investigated within the effective mass approximation. We find a significant dependence of the fundamental transition energy on the polarity of the substrate's surface.

Comparison between semiclassical and full quantum transport analysis of THz quantum cascade lasers Mátyás A; Kubis T; Lugli P; Jirauschek C (2010)We implement and compare two theoretical models for stationary electron transport in quantum cascade lasers and Stark ladders. The first one, the nonequilibrium Green's function method is a very general scheme to include ...
