    The use of Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations for determining effective mass is illustrated by a study of the magnetotransport properties of the two-dimensional hole gas in Si1-xGex (x = 0.13, 0.36, 0.95, 0.98) quantum wells. For some samples the data cannot be fitted to standard theoretical curves...

    We studied the behavior of middle IR GaAs/AlGaAs quantum cascade lasers (QCL) subjected to a strong magnetic field perpendicular to the 2D planes. We observed that both laser threshold and differential quantum efficiency are modulated by a magnetic field. The intersubband lifetime vs magnetic...

    The Friedel sum rule is generalized to relativistic systems of spin-1/2 particles in one dimension. The change of the total energy due to the presence of an impurity is studied. The relation of the sum rule with the relativistic Levinson theorem is presented. Density oscillations in such systems...

    The effect of charge-carrier overheating in a two-dimensional (2D) hole gas is realized in a Si1-xGex quantum well, where x=0.13, 0.36, 0.8, or 0.95. The Shubnikov–de Haas (SdH) oscillation amplitude is used as a “thermometer” to measure the temperature of overheated holes....

    Exact close-coupling calculations for H2 rigid rotor scattering from a LiF (001) surface are presented. Using a standard model potential, rotation-diffraction transition probabilities are reported for a range of collision energies up to 0.7 eV and for various surface corrugations. The...

    A general methodology is described for carrying out quantum mechanical reactive scattering calculations. The approach is based on Miller’s [J. Chem. Phys. 50, 407 (1969)] formulation of quantum reactive scattering in which rearrangement processes (i.e., chemical reactions) are...

    An exact solution is analyzed for the analogs of bound and scattering states in a nonstationary quantum mechanical system whose potential has the form of two dispersing delta-wells. For the delta-potentials explicit (in the form of operator kernels) expressions are found for the integrals of the...
