Abstract

By using an appropriate coordinate transformation, we have calculated variationally the ground state binding energy of a hydrogenic donor impurity in a quantum well in the presence of crossed electric and magnetic fields which are applied tilted at an angle to the layers. The dependence of the donor impurity binding energy on the well width, on the strength of the electric and magnetic fields, on the impurity position and on the directions of the external fields is discussed.
