Paper Abstract

A nuraerical solution of the one dirriensional Schrodinger equation for an arbitrary potential profile has been conceived to be used within a transport model for semiconductor heterostructures and superlattices. This solution method achieves energy high resolution in the bound eigenstates numerical conputation this feature is particularly useful in analyzing superlattices structure where the periodic quantuni wells give rise to energy xainibands formation. The algorithni is capable to resolve between two consecutive eigenstates less than iO eV apart. This algorithm has been successfully iinplenented on a HP 340 desktop coTriputer.
