Abstract

Based on the hydrogenic effective-mass approximation, an image-potential method is developed for the treatment of impurities in semiconductors with a boundary surface. The Schrödinger equation is separable in prolate spheroidal coordinates Generalized spheroidal wave equations of and resulting from the separation constitute the basic equations for the study of surface effects on impurity states.
