Abstract
We present a theoretical model for analyzing resonant tunneling processes in a multi-layer superlattice structure. The model is then applied to the analysis of asymmetric superlattices formed by varying the well widths in a natural series progression, i.e., Fibonacci and Odd series variations. These structures are analyzed at zero and applied bias. Plots of the transmissivity vs. energy, current density vs. applied voltage, and the wavefunction amplitude vs. real space position are presented. Finally, we show that a new superlattice concept, the variably spaced superlattice energy filter, leads to resonant alignment under bias with subsequent control of carrier injection energy.
