Paper Abstract

New boundary conditions are derived for tunnel-heterojunctions, where the effective Hamiltonian is a generic power of the momentum-operator. A novel expression of probability-current operator, which can be also applied in presence of the D'yakonov-Perel (DP) Hamiltonian, has to be used. We test our technique on the interface between two semi-infinite media, with on one side a free-electron-like material and on the other side the [110]- oriented GaAs barrier.
