The spatial and time dispersions of the dielectric permittivity of an electron gas in quasi-two-dimensional quantum nanostructures are studied. The screening of the charge-carrier scattering potential in a quantum-confined film with a modified P¨oschel–Teller potential is considered for the first time. Analytical expressions for the dielectric permittivity are obtained.
