FIG. 1.

(a) Power factor values calculated as a function of nanowire radius assuming the single-subband model (dashed line) and the many-subband model (solid line). (b) as a function of both nanowire radius and the number of subbands considered when calculating the transport properties. (c) Contour plot of the data shown in (b). The spacing between contour lines is ; some of these lines (between 1.8 and ) are labeled. The dashed line marks the number of subbands required for convergence of values as a function of radius. Calculations in the shaded region of the plot are therefore inaccurate. Note that all values shown reflect an optimal doping level.

FIG. 2.

Power factor as a function of radius calculated by solving the BTE with the complete band structure (solid line) and calculated assuming a simple model based on a count of the number of contributing subbands, (dashed line). The inset shows calculated values as a function of nanowire radius.
