  1. 1. On the Properties of a Few Electron-Hole system in a Double One-dimensional Harmonic Trap

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Matematisk fysik

    Author : Fan Pan; [2012]
    Keywords : Electron-Hole system; Few-body; CI methods; Exciton-like; Double one-dimension; harmonic trap; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : One of the most important concepts in condensed matter physics is that of ``quasi particles''. The exciton is one such quasi particle. In semi-conductors, excitons are formed by the excitation of electrons from valence band to conduction band, which creates holes in the valence band. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exact Diagonalization of Few-electron Quantum Dots

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap, fysik och matematik, DFM

    Author : Shirin Hakimi; [2009]
    Keywords : two-dimensional quantum dot; strongly correlated system; few-electron system; exact diagonalization; Lanczos method; Landau level; fractional quantum Hall effect; Wigner crystal; Hartree-Fock approximation; Second quantization;

    Abstract : We consider a system of few electrons trapped in a two-dimensional circularquantum dot with harmonic confinement and in the presence of ahomogeneous magnetic field, with focus on the role of e-e interaction. Byperforming the exact diagonalization of the Hamiltonian in second quantization,the low-lying energy levels for spin polarized system are obtained. READ MORE
