Abstract

A theoretical study was done for calculating the energy band structure of the semiconductor materials using the Kronig-Penney model. This model can predict the results of optical characterizations and act as a guide for the growth parameters to achieve a desired band structure. The methods in this thesis can describe, theoretically and experimentally, the band structure of the materials and devices grown in the lab.
