Problem 2: Consider an infinitely long linear 1D lattice (lattice constant: a) with one sorbital per atom (assumed orthogonal) and having a site energy of ε , so that the Hamiltonian looks like < a > Lessons from nanoelectronics: Copyright 2010 [email protected] All Rights Reserved 2 H te i te i te i te i te i Find the dispersion relation E(k). Problem 3: In class we have seen that an infinitely long linear 1D lattice (lattice constant: a) with a Hamiltonian H t t t t t has a dispersion relation E ( k ) 2 t cos ka where ka (1) Do the same problem using a unit cell of two atoms (instead of one) and show that E ( k ) 2 t cos ka where /2 ka /2 (2) Are (1) and (2) equivalent?
