The optical and electronic properties of (GaAs) n /(InAs) n superlattices are calculated by means of LMTO-ASA method. The too small band gap problem of bulk material and superlattices is corrected by adding to the effective potentials an additional external potential that is sharply peaked at the atomic sites. The results show that the optical properties of GaAs/InAs(001) superlattices are about average of that of two bulks of GaAs and InAs.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
