Consider 1-dim case, when we turn on a lattice potential with period

a, the electron wave will be Bragg reflected when k=

/a, which

forms two different types of standing wave. (Peierls, 1930)

Bloch theorem (1928)

The electron states in a periodic potential is of the form

rr

r

r

ik r

kr (r ) = e ukr (r )

The cell-periodic part uk(x) depends on the form of the

periodic potential.

A simple proof for 1-dim:

(x+a)=C(x)

Consider periodic BC,

(x+Na)=(x)=CN(x)

C=exp(i2s/N), s=0,1,2 N-1

Write (x) as uk(x) exp(i2sx/Na)

then uk(x) = uk(x+a)

k

the total number of primitive cells in a crystal.

There are N k-points in an energy band, each k-point can be

occupied by two electrons (spin up and down).

each energy band has 2N seats for electrons.

If a solid has one valence electron per primitive cell, then the energy

band is half-filled (conductor)

If two electrons per primitive cell, then there are 2 possibilities

(a) no energy overlap or (b) energy overlap

insulator

conductor

For example, all alkali metals are conductors, while alkali earth

elements can be conductor/insulator. (Boron?)

If k is close to g/2, then the most significant components of

y1k(x) and y2k(x) are exp[i(k-g)x] and exp[ikx], others can be

neglected.
