Paper Abstract

We analyzed effective masses for InyGa1-yAs1-xNx/GaAs quantum-well structures within self-consistent approach by solving 10-band k.p Hamiltonian matrix with the Poisson equation. Both single well and double well systems were considered. Numerical results have been presented for a large range of material and structural parameters. Our results show that significant variation in the effective masses is possible by adjusting the relevant parameters and that the effects due to self-consistency are small.
