Fall 2010 ECE 453 HW #5 Due 10/22 HW # 5 Due Friday, October 22, 2010 This homework is based on QTAT, Sections 5.1-5.2, 6.1-6.2. Sections3.1-3.3, 4.1-4.2 provide useful background material. QTAT: S.Datta, Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor, Cambridge (2005), ISBN 0- 521-63145-9, on reserve in Engineering Library and HKN lounge Central result: [ h ( r k )] [ H nm ] exp( i r k .( r d m r d n )) m Bandstructure Problem 1: A molecule (NOT a solid) consists of eight carbon atoms arranged at the corners of a regular octagon of side ‘a’. Assume (1) one orbital per carbon atom as basis function and (2) the Hamiltonian matrix is given by H n , n (site energy) H n , m t if n, m are neighboring atoms H n , m 0 if n, m are NOT nearest neighbors What are the eight energy eig envalues in terms of ‘ ’ and ‘t’ ? Write down the corresponding eigenvectors. Assume the basis functions to be orthogonal so that the overlap matrix [S] is a

    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.
