Figure 10

Side (top panel) and top (bottom panel) view of the electron distribution probability when the hole position is fixed on top of the Ge atom indicated by a black dot. The wire under consideration is an Abrupt SiGe NW with diameter d = 1.6 nm and composition x Ge = 0.6875. Blue spheres represent Ge atoms, cyan spheres Si atoms, while the small white spheres are H atoms used to saturate the dangling bonds. The isosurface of the e-h distribution probability is shown in green-yellow (color online)
