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…
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.
