Here, we calculate the local density of states LDOS(z,E) for a
onedimensional system of GaAs which is restricted to z > 0 nm. This LDOS can be derived analytically and reads
where k = (2m*E)^{1/2} / h_{bar}. The following figure shows the calculated LDOS_{1D}(z,E) for z = [0
nm, 20 nm] and E = [0 eV, 0.3 eV].
The local density of states output LDOS(z,E) is contained in these files:
Local density of states for a 3D system restricted to z > 0 nmThe following plot is based on Fig. 1.11 (p. 30) of
