Abstract:

The exact eigenenergy spectrum of an electron is calculated in a quantum well within an in-plane magnetic field. The numerical solutions for the excited energy states as well as the ground state energy are found for various quantum-well widths and barrier heights. The cyclotron orbits are considerably affected by the quantum well. The energy levels higher than the potential height of the quantum well and the energy levels lower than the potential height of the quantum well show quite different behaviors. These are explained with the properties of the combined potential and the wave function inherent to the system. Keywords Quantum calculation, Bulk landau levels.
