Accurate determination of the electro-elastic fields of quantum nanostructures within piezoelectric media is an important issue for realizing the electro-mechanical behavior of these nanostructures. In this paper, the governing partial differential equations corresponding to piezoelectric media containing quantum nanostructures are presented and subsequently, generalized analytical solutions based on Fourier series technique are developed for determination of the coupled electro-elastic fields in transversely isotropic piezoelectric barrier due to periodically distributed quantum nanostructures. The electro-elastic couplings of the piezoelectric barrier as well as the interactions between the quantum nanostructures are exhibited within the framework of the presented analytical solution. It is observed that no electric field and no electric potential will be induced anywhere in the medium for periodic distribution of quantum wires. The presented analytical solution is capable of treating different shapes and geometries of quantum wires/quantum dots. The electro-elastic fields of various shapes of sections of quantum wires and different geometries of quantum dots are studied and the effects of the geometry of periodically distributed quantum nanostructures are demonstrated. The results show that geometry of quantum nanostructures may highly affect the induced electro-elastic fields and therefore, accurate determination of the geometry of quantum nanostructures as well as the induced electro-elastic fields would be essential for employment of these nanostructures in different fields of research and technology.
