Unformatted text preview: energy is given as 2 ⎛ π ⎞ E= ⎜ ⎟ = 2.14 eV . 2m ⎝ a ⎠ 2 At the top of the gap, we have αa ~ 1.7, so that 2 ⎛ 1.7π ⎞ ⎜ ⎟ = 6.18 eV 2m ⎝ a ⎠ 2 E= and the forbidden gap is EG = 6.18 − 2.14 = 4.04 eV . (b) At ka = 2π, αa has the same value, so the energy is given as 2 ⎛ 2π ⎞ E= ⎜ ⎟ = 8.55 eV . 2m ⎝ a ⎠ 2 At the top of the gap, we have αa ~ 2.6, so that 2 ⎛ 2.6π ⎞ ⎜ ⎟ = 14.45 eV 2m ⎝ a ⎠ 2 E= and the forbidden gap is...
