Abstract

The effect of spin-orbit interaction is included in the linear combination of atomic orbitals calculation of heterojunction band discontinuities. It is found that spin-orbit interaction is not negligible when the atomic number of the constituent atoms exceeds about 40. The effect of spin-orbit interaction as well as some interesting observations and their implications are briefly discussed.
