Abstract

By considering a suitable confinement potential, we calculate the exchange-correlation induced band gap renormalization (BGR) in a V-grooved quantum wire as a function of the electron-hole plasma density and quantum wire width. The leading-order GW dynamical screening approximation is used in the calculation by treating the electron-electron Coulomb interaction and electron-optical phonon interaction. A numerical scheme has been proposed, and the screened Coulomb potential, density of states (profile of charge distribution) and the value of the renormalized gap energy are calculated. We will show that the carrier concentration, the screened confinement potential and the relative band gap ren..
