Diffusion Monte Carlo study of a valley-degenerate electron gas and application to quantum dots


A many-flavor electron gas MFEG in a semiconductor with a valley degeneracy ranging between 6 and 24 was analyzed using diffusion Monte Carlo DMC calculations. The DMC results compare well to an analytic expression derived by one of us Phys. Rev. B 78, 035111 2008 for the total energy to within 1% over an order of magnitude range of density, which increases… (More)
