5-69 Representation in k-space = ( x , 0, 0) Fig. 5.36 The effect of a costant electric field x on the k -space distributin of quasifree electrons: a) The Fermi sphere of the equilibrium distribution [ - - - - - - , centered at (0,0,0)] is displaced in the stationary state by an amount δ k x = -e τ x / . b) The new Fermi distribution f ( E ( k )) only differs significantly from the equilibrium distribution f 0 ( - - - - - - ) in the vicinity of the Fermi energy (Fermi radius).S
5-70 Fig. 5.37 a , b . electron scattering processes in k -space. The dashed circle represents the Fermi surface in thermodynamic equilibrium ( = 0). Under the influence of an electric field x and for a constant current, the Fermi surface is displaced as shown by the full circle.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
