NNSE 508 EM Lecture #10 2 Density of states How to fill the states in almost free electron band structure ? 1. Calculate number of states per unit energy per unit volume 2. Use Pauli exclusion principle and distribution function to fill the bands Electrons are waves ! Large 3D box (L is large, n is large) with Born-von Karman boundary Conditions: 3D : 2D : 1D : Free electron approximation: 0 Lx V(x) x V0 Number of states: z z z y y y x x x n L k n L k n L k π 2 2 2 = = = ikr Ae ± = ψ ( 29 3 2 V N = ( , , ) ( , , ) same for y and z x x L y z x y z + = ( 29 z y x z y x z y x n n n L L L k k k = = = 3 2 ( 29 2 2 S N Σ = 2 kL N =
