Solid State Physics

Solid-state physics studies how the large-scale properties of solid materials result from their atomic-scale properties.

Bismuth's brillouin zone

Brillouin Zone

BZones - a JAVA applet to visualize Brillouin zones Brillouin zones are an important concept in solid state physics. They are in reciprocal space of crystalline materials the geometrical equivalent of Wigner-Seitz cells in real space. Not every energy level of the electrons is allowed in a crystal.In k-space they form a band-structure, and duo […]
