An Exactly Solvable Algebraic Model for Single Quantum Well Treatments


We propose an algebraic model, presenting individual contributions separately in the system of interest, for the exact solutions of one-dimensional Poisson-Schr?dinger equations used generally in semiconductor device simulations. The model presented here reveals an interesting relation between the corresponding Poisson and Schr?dinger equation for the physical structure considered, which leads to closed solutions without solving the required electrostatic equation.
