We report a theoretical investigation of the strain effects on the electronic energy band in a GaAs-In0.25Ga0.75As-Al0.5Ga0.5As asymmetric quantum wire formed in a V-grooved substrate. Our model is based on the sp3s* tight-binding model. It includes different spatial distributions of the lattice-mismatch-induced strain. We solve numerically the tight-binding Hamiltonian through the local Green's function from which the electronic local density of states (LDOS) is obtained. The detailed energy...[Show more]
