atoms [2], or the optical properties of semiconductors [3]. Excitons are elementary excitations in semiconductors [4] and in semiconductor quantum nanostructures. An exciton is generated when an electron from the valence band is promoted to the conduction band by the absorption of a photon, thereby creating a hole in the valence band.

This model agrees well with experimental data at high temperatures, but does not work at low temperatures. Wang applied the pseudopotential approach to study the CL mechanism in different InGaN systems23, which mainly focuses on the contribution of compo-nent fluctuation and quantum-dot formation to the carrier localization.

binding (TB) [3] or pseudopotential [4] methods provide a better description in the strong-confinement regime, where the QD radius R is smaller than the bulk exciton Bohr radius aB. It was early recognized that the quantum confinement also increases the overlap between the electron (e) and hole (h) charge distributions leading to an enhanced


May 26, 2019 Previous investigations of semiconductors with the diamond and zincblende crystal structures by means of the empirical pseudopotential method (EPM) have shown that the electronic spectra of these elements can be qualitatively described within the framework of this method.

all anions in ionic semiconductors. In practice, the self-energy potential is obtained from the difference of atomic potentials between an isolated neutral atom and its ion with 1/2 electron stripped, which is then added to the pseudopotential of the corresponding atom (i.e., the anion) in periodic solid state calculations.


properties of these semiconductors has attracted the interest of researcher for last few years [1-6]. Previously, we have successfully used higher-order perturbation theory to calculate many physical properties of Group IV, Group III-V and II-VI elemental and compound semiconductors using model potential proposed by Jivani et al.

Although freezing the d-electrons in the core of a pseudopotential is computationally very efficient, it leads to a distinct disagreement between theory and experiment for the strucural properties as shown by several LDA studies [26, 27, 28].
