How to get the data of strain for each layer in MQW solver?

      It is written in the reference manual-results returned, "Conduction and valence band edge including strain, but not including quantum confinement effects".

      How can I get the strain for each layer if I enable the "calculate strain" option.

      Hi.
      When the ÔÇ£calculate strainÔÇØ option is enabled the strain is automatically calculated by the solver based on the reference materials, using the lattice constants of different stacks. More detailed description on this, and adding strain to MQW in general, is provided in this article.
      Best regards
