Effects of geometry and electric and magnetic fields on the thermal properties of two-dimensional semiconducting nanoporous superlattices

We investigated the effects of the number of quantum dots, system length, composition parameter x in AlxGa1-xAs medium, external electric field intensity and direction, and external magnetic field strength on the specific heat of the this system

  • We determined the thermodynamic properties of two-dimensional semiconducting nanoporous superlattices
  • We investigated the effects of the number of quantum dots, system length, composition parameter x in AlxGa1-xAs medium, external electric field intensity and direction, and external magnetic field strength on the specific heat of the this system
  • We found that the heat capacity peak position and amplitude were effectively tunable, and we could adjust these quantities to the desired values
  • Our findings may help researchers to select a desirable system with the typical heat capacity height and position
  • We employed a finite difference method to solve the resulting two-dimensional Schrodinger equation and evaluated the heat capacities of the systems based on the energy fluctuations
  • The plots of the heat capacity C(T) as a function of the temperature T when the system lengths are Lx = Ly
