Spectral Properties of Bent Quantum Wires

  • P. Exner
Part of the Mathematical Physics Studies book series (MPST, volume 12)


Spectral properties for Hamiltonians describing pure-semiconductor quantum wires are discusssed. The curvature-induced bound states that exist in thin infinitely long wires are shown to turn into resonances when a finite-length wire is joined to a pair of macroscopic electrodes.
