    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...

    The theory of large-radius polarons in quantum dots is developed with the difference in dielectric properties between the materials of the quantum dot and surrounding matrix taken into consideration. It is shown that the magnitude of the polaron effect is essentially dependent on the spectrum of...

    Within an extended Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model, we made a lattice vibrational analysis of polyacene. In a singly-charged polyacene, the ground state contains an interchain-coupled polaron of quasi-D2h symmetry, around which we found thirteen localized modes in total. Among these localized modes,...

    Polaron effects on excitons in parabolic quantum wells are studied theoretically by using a variational approach with the so-called fractional dimension model. The numerical results for the exciton binding energies and longitudinal-optical phonon contributions in GaAs/Al0.3Ga0.7As parabolic...
