Resonance tunneling in figurate AlGaAs semiconductor superlattices
- 44 Downloads
A new type of semiconductor superlattice with design based on figurate numbers is proposed and investigated. A comparison of tunneling transparencies and the distributions of the electron density of figurate superlattices with the resonant tunneling characteristics of standard Fibonacci superlattices is given. The results that have been obtained are intended for use in nanotechnologies.
