This work focuses on modeling the tunneling mechanism in direct semiconductors. An effective barrier is extracted between the valence and conduction band, by defining the barrier as valence-like near the valence band and conduction bandlike near the conduction band. The transition occurs at a point obtained by momentum matching. Computation of transition… CONTINUE READING
