Abstract A Fortran 90 code is provided for calculating the electron reflection and transmission coefficients in semiconductor heterostructures within the 14-band k ⋅ p approximation. The code may easily be adapted for use with any k ⋅ p model, including magnetic field and/or strain effects, for example. Numerical instability, which is problematic in type-II systems due to the simultaneous presence of propagating and evanescent states, is reduced by developing a novel log-derivative R-matrix approach b...
