The obtained rate, however, can be modified substantially at low energies by including the correction of the outgoing electron wave due to the Coulomb field.
The electron wave functions are decomposed in a plane wave basis.
The electron wave function is more firmly localized inside the QD with decreasing the dot radius, and the Coulomb interaction between the electron and the impurity ion is enhanced, so the donor binding energy increases correspondingly.
In order to obtain the electron wave vector in the dot and barrier regions, the left side of (2) and (3), cos(q[xi]D[xi]), can be expressed as a function f([E.sub.[xi]]) of energy [E.sub.[xi]] [14].
Based on the two analogies described previously, one can consider the brain as the crystal and the stream of consciousness (or its contents) as the electron wave field inside the brain.
However, Quantum mechanics says that the electron wave nature will allow it to tunnel through the barrier.
In order to rationalize the observed trends, we have investigated the dynamics of electron in the thin film, namely, the spatiotemporal propagation of the electron wave packets and the corresponding classical trajectories obtained, respectively, by the Maxwell-Schrodinger and Maxwell-Newton schemes.
Section 3 is devoted to the calculations of electron wave function at finite temperature.
When we try to look at the spread-out electron wave, it collapses into a definite particle, but when we are not looking it keeps its options open.
For these purposes simple and exact methods to calculate the electron spectrum in quantum structures and the electron wave functions are of great interest.
The connectivity in their flow, Yazdani said, stems from a special form of electron wave that seemingly alters the pattern of flow around any imperfection.
