Si • Crystal – periodic arrangement of atoms/molecules • Propagating electrons “see” periodic potential due to atoms/molecules. • Conduction properties dictated by crystal geometry. • Crystal lattice introduces energy bandgap (Eg) freq [c/a] • Optical analogy is photonic crystal • Periodic potential due to lattice of dielectric material. • Propagation of photons controlled by dielectric contrast and (r/a) ratio. Band Gap • Can engineer a photonic bandgap Nanostructures Research Group CENTER FOR SOLID STATE ELECTRONICS RESEARCH
