The exciton transition energies between valence and conduction subbands of symmetric double quantum wells are studied. To study the effect of geometry coupled wells of rectangular, graded and parabolic shapes are considered. A special emphasis is given to the study of crossover between the symmetric light-hole (e1-11) and the antisymmetric heavy-hole (e2-h2) transitions.

For the first time theoretical (in terms of the classical theory of ordering) and experimental (with the adiabatic calorimeter method) investigations are made of the effect of a third component impurity C on the heat capacity of A3B‐type ordered alloys with FCC structure. The effect of the impurities Mn, Cr, Mo, or W on the heat capacity of Ni3Fe alloys is analysed as an example. The comparison of the theoretical results with the experimental data shows good qualitative agreement.
Critical behaviour of the polarization, tilt angle, electric susceptibility and the specific heat close to the SmA-ferroelectric SmC (SmC*) phase transitions
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Kilit, E. (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
This study gives the temperature dependence of the two order parameters, namely, polarization P and the tilt angle theta, when there is a biquadratic coupling P-2 theta(2) in the expansion of the Landau free energy. This applies to the electric-field-induced SmA-Ferro-Electric SmC (SmC*) phase transition. From this expansion of the Landau free energy in terms of the polarization and the tilt angle, we obtain the temperature dependence of the electric susceptibility chi and the electric field dependence of t...
Nonlinear Seebeck and Peltier effects in quantum point contacts
Çipiloğlu, Mustafa A; Turgut, Sadi; Tomak, Mehmet (Wiley, 2004-09-01)
The charge and entropy currents across a quantum point contact are expanded as a series in powers of the applied bias voltage and the temperature difference. After that, the expansions of the Seebeck voltage in temperature difference and the Peltier heat in current are obtained. With a suitable choice of the average temperature and chemical potential, the lowest order nonlinear term in both cases appear to be of third order. The behavior of the third-order coefficients in both cases are then investigated fo...

The polarization of a quantum electron confined in square, parabolic, and triangular quantum wells is calculated numerically. The aim of the present calculations is to compare the results for various geometries.
Analysis of the Spontaneous Polarization and the Dielectric Constant Near the Ferroelectric Phase Transition in TSCC
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
The temperature dependence of the spontaneous polarization and the dielectric constant has been analyzed for the fixed pressures of 0.001,1 and 2.2 kbar close to the phase transitions in TSCC. This analysis is performed using the experimental data for TSCC according to a power-law formula. From our analysis, using the experimental data for the spontaneous polarization, we deduce the values of the critical exponent = 0.32 (1 bar), 0.28 (1 kbar) and 0.26 (2.2 kbar) for the spontaneous polarization near the tr...
