Question

Optics

Then, the rays from the sun will meet water droplets in the air in the distance in front ofyou.

The rays will first bend as they travel from the air into the water droplet (change in medium).

Second, some of the bent rays will bounce off the of the water droplet rather than travel out the back into the air.

Third, the bounced rays will bend again as they exit the front of the water droplet and enter air again (change in medium).

These three steps result in the separation of colors that we see as a rainbow.This process is diagrammed below.

Light is an example of electromagnetic waves. The person's eye absorbs the photon of the incoming rays and interprets as different colors. This is an example of the particle nature of EM waves. Decide if the following characteristics of light are examples of the wave nature or particle nature of EM waves.

The frequency of the light.

The wavelength of the light.

You may use an answer more than once and you may use an answer not at all.

Question 36477

Optics

In a three dimensional semiconductor crystal with a perfect lattice. Assume the distance between atoms is 'b' center meter. The reciprocal lattice is what we call k-space. It's Fourier transform of original lattice. We solve the Schrödinger equation of electron wave in original periodical lattice with one unit cube of side length of b and obtain the electron wave mode. We can represent all solutions in the k-space with each point of the k-value as one solution i.e. one mode. This problem is asking you to derive the mode density in this crystal.
d). if we related the results to the density of modes, we can equal it to p(k)*dk, where the p(k) is the density of the modes. Please find the p(k) based on c) result. (5 points)
e). Based on d) result, please normalized it to unit volume mode density. (5 points)
b). Imagine in k-space, there is a spherical shell, the radius of the inner sphere is k, the thickness of the shell is the differential dk, write down the volume of the spherical shell. (5 points)
f). Based on e), convert unit volume normalized p(k) to p(v) by using p(k)dk=p(v)dv relationship.It's more convenient to use frequency v instead of k in the real practice. (5 points)
c). How many cells in the spherical shell in total? (5 points) Due to k can only be positive, how many cells in the first quadrant? (5 points) Each k point can correspond to two modes for electron spin up and spin down. So how many modes in the first quadrant in k-space. (5 points)
a). Assume the electrical potential distribution is infinite near the atoms. This results in a periodic solution with periodic unit (T/b, T/b, T/b) in kx, ky and kz directions of k-space. Write done the volume of the unit cell in the k-space. (5 points)
