Quantum Dot Eigenstate Isosurfaces

Of the first 8 electron wave functions.

The figure above shows the isosurfaces of first 8 electron state wavefunctions in a pyramidal quantum dot computed in a single band effective mass model. The axes are in units of crystalline unit cells (~2.5 Angstrom=0.25 nanometer) and the normalized wavefunction magnitude isosurfaces are ramped between values of 0.01 and 0.99. We generated this result to test our distretization scheme and the resonance finder.
