  Quantum bound states





(1D only)

Finds out all eigenfunctions which are localized within a certain region where one expects bound states for example. The quantum states are specified by a certain threshold fraction of psi within the region [x-left; x-right]. This is necessary for large quantum regions which extend far beyond the region of interest and therefore have many irrelevant eigenstates.

set-number = 1

Number to distinguish different sets of localized states, has to be in ascending order.


quantum-region = 1

Number of quantum region in which to look for localized states.


num-schroedinger-equation =1 

Number of Schrödinger equation in which to look for localized states.


charge = el / hl

Flag whether electrons or holes are regarded.


x-left = 124d0

Left boundary of localization region.


x-right = 124d0

Right boundary of localization region.


threshold = 0.6d0

Minimum fraction of amplitude squared of certain eigenstate within [x-left;x-right] to be regarded as localized state.
