Schroedinger equation

The nextnano software can be used to study basic Quantum Mechanics text book examples. It can thus be used for teaching in classes.


Examples

  • Black body spectrum
  • 1D, 2D and 3D Schrödinger equation for arbitrary potential energy profiles
  • Infinite quantum well
  • Finite quantum well
  • Quantum harmonic oscillator
  • Triangular quantum well
  • Double quantum well
  • Matrix elements and selection rules
  • Expectation value
  • Perturbation theory
  • Tunneling: Transmission function of potential step, potential barrier, quantum well and double barrier
  • Periodic structures: Superlattice
  • Energy bands
  • Band structure (Tight-binding)
  • ... more examples will be added soon.

Handout

A preliminary handout containing some nextnano examples is available. (Version 2016-05-11)
