A molecular theoretic approach to GaN
Gallium nitride is one of the most important semi-conductor material and a possible candidate for nano-electronic devices. Gallium nitride layers are getting importance towards the possible application for nanotechnology. A molecular theoretic approach is given here for the band structure calculations of gallium nitride structures. One of the main objectives of this work is to study the excitation of surface plasmon and to show how surface plasmon can be exploited by the experimentalists to understand the properties of nanomaterials.
