    We have calculated the longitudinal optical phonon scattering contribution to electron tunneling through a double-barrier diode. Our model takes into account the delocalization of the incident electron over the whole structure as well as the momentum transfer between electrons and phonons. Our...

    We have devised a semiclassical procedure based on the Makri–Miller [J. Chem. Phys. 91, 4026 (1989)] model for calculating the eigenvalue splitting in many-atom systems and have used it to calculate the ground-state splitting in several isotopomers of malonaldehyde. A potential-energy...

    Effects of piezoelectric and longitudinal optical (LO) phonon scatterings on transport of electrons confined in quasi-two-dimensional square wells of wurtzite and zinc-blende structures are compared by using a theory of absorption power derived in the linear response scheme.

    We calculate the change in the density of states due to a biased resonant tunneling structure. The maximum of the density of states near resonance gets shifted towards the low-energy side compared to the unbiased case, as does the transmission coefficient, although the two need not be identical....
