The effect of a spatially dependent effective mass on the energy levels in a rectangular quantum wire with finite barrier potential is considered. The heterojunction is modelled by an error function rather than a step function to more accurately model the material transition region at the interface between the two materials. The carrier ground state is calculated using the envelope function approximation for Ga0.47In0.53As/InP and GaAs/Ga0.63Al0.37As systems. The results are lower than those reported before, and are in better agreement with the experimental points.

The effect of external magnetic field on the excited state energies in a spherical quantum dot was studied. The impurity energy and binding energy were calculated using the variational method within the effective mass approximation and finite barrier potential. The results showed that by increasing the magnetic field, the energy would be increased. The results obtained by this method were compared with the previous investigations.
