The infinite potential well is a simple model for a
quantum dot (see
C.1 The Infinite Potential Well
The infinite potential well of width d.
We are interested in the characteristic spacing
between energy levels, especially the height of the first level.
Starting with the Ansatz
and the boundary conditions
non-trivial solutions are only possible for discrete
wave vector values
And consequently the energy levels are
