Interband tunneling in nanowires was studied with a non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) method focusing on the incident and outgoing eigenstates of the left and right leads. Tunneling is allowed only between paired lead eigenstates linked to each other via an imaginary wavevector in the forbidden gap. Following Kane's tunneling theory, we believe that… CONTINUE READING
