III-V and II-VI structures, EPM, Wurtzite,


The electronic and structural properties of wurtzite InN, ZnS and CdSe structures are studied using the empirical pseudopotential method (EPM). The principal energy at Γ of wurtzite InN, ZnS and CdSe compounds are calculated. Band structure of wurtzite InN, ZnS and CdSe materials are presented. Other quantity such as bulk modules by means
of our model is calculated.
