Compound semiconductor heterostructures such as quantum dots, nanowires, or thin films, are commonly subject to randomly fluctuating alloy compositions if they contain ternary and quaternary alloys. These effects are obviously of an atomistic nature and thus rarely considered in heterostructure designs that require simulations on a continuum level for theory-guided design or interpretation of observations.
