SPECIAL AMO/QO PHYSICS SEMINAR


"Microscopic Models for Engineering of Optoelectronic Devices"


Dr. Weng Chow
Sandia National Laboratory

ABSTRACT 

Microscopic models are those with relatively detailed descriptions of quantum mechanics of devices being studied. They allow understanding of optoelectronic device behavior at an underlying physics level and provide the predictive capability necessary for band-structure engineering. This talk will use the example of a quantum-dot laser to illustrate the development and application of such a model. The approach is sufficiently flexible to allow modeling of light-emitting diodes (LEDs), atom traps, and perhaps, photovoltaic cells.
