Abstract

We obtain an effective parametrization of the bulk electronic structure of InP within the tight-binding scheme. Using these parameters, we calculate the electronic structure of InP clusters with the size ranging up to 7.5 nm. The calculated variations in the electronic structure as a function of the cluster size is found to be in excellent agreement with experimental results over the entire range of sizes, establishing the effectiveness and transferability of the obtained parameter strengths.
