An Efficient and Accurate Method to Calculate the Two-Dimensional Scattering Rates in Heterostructure Semiconductors
An accurate and efficient method is investigated to solve Schrödinger’s equation by using variational techniques. The electronic states inside heterostructure devices are determined by a self-consistent solution of Poisson’s and Schrödinger’s equations. The closed forms of the wave functions are used to calculate the two-dimensional scattering rates in these structures. The computational efficiency is compared to that of conventional finite difference models.
