Qualitative prediction of the confinement effect in the effective mass using a density functional k·p perturbation calculation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A procedure is proposed to predict electronic structures in thin films from bulk properties using density functional k·p perturbation method. This procedure is based on the phenomenological expression of zero-point energy using effective mass approximation. It is found that the results by this procedure and those calculated using slab models agrees very well. A prediction is also demonstrated for the electronic structures of <110> uniaxially strained silicon thin films in the <001> confinement.
