    The ground-state properties of polarons in a one-dimensional chain is studied analytically within the modified Lang-Firsov (MLF) transformation using various phonon-averaging techniques. The object of the work is to examine how the analytical approaches may be improved to give rise to the real...

    A variational method is used to investigate the binding energies of bound polarons near the interface in a GaAs/Al[sub x]Ga[sub 1-x]As heterojunction by considering the hydrostatic pressure effect. It is found that the comprehensive pressure effect on the heterojunction factors increases the...

    For systems of N charged fermions (e.g. electrons) interacting with longitudinal optical quantized lattice vibrations of a polar crystal we derive upper and lower bounds on the minimal energy within the model of H. Fröhlich. The only parameters of this model, after removing the ultraviolet...

    Temperature and compositional dependence of the electrical transport properties of the nonconventional binary bismuth cuprate glasses are reported for the first time. It has been observed that the phonon assisted small polaron hopping model in the nonadiabatic regime is consistent with the data...

    The ranges of ε[sup *]/ε[sub ∞] and of the electron-phonon coupling constant in which the three-dimensional bipolaron exists are determined. The limits of these ranges correspond to the emergence of the first bound state of two polarons. The criteria for the first bound state to arise...

    We studied polaron effects due to the interaction of an electron with optical phonons in ferroelectrics with a layered crystal structure. We evaluated the polaron self-energy using the effective T-matrix. We showed that transition from the large radius polaron to the small radius polaron is...
