Abstract: The ground state and a few excited state energies of a hydrogenic donor in a quantum well are computed in the presence of pressure and temperature. The binding energies are worked out for GaAs/Ga 1−x Al x As structures as a function of well size when the pressure and temperature are applied simultaneously. A variational approach within the effective mass approximation is considered. The results show that for a constant applied pressure, an increase in temperature results in a decrease in donor impurity bindin…
