Photons: Light as a wave
The classical view of light as an electromagnetic (EM) wave. Phenomena such as interference, diffraction, refraction and reflection can be explained by theory of waves. An electromagnetic wave is a traveling wave with time-varying electric and magnetic Fields that are perpendicular to each other and to the direction of propagation.

Diffraction patterns obtained by passing X-rays through crystals can only be explained by using ideas based on the interference of waves. (a) Diffraction of X-rays from a single crystal gives a diffraction pattern of bright spots on a photographic film. (b) Diffraction of X-rays from a powdered crystalline material or a polycrystalline material gives a diffraction pattern of bright rings on a photographic film.

Bragg’s Law Bragg diffraction condition
The equation is referred to as Bragg’s law, and arises from the constructive interference of scattered waves. Aside from exhibiting wave-like properties, light can behave like a stream of particles of zero rest-mass. It can be viewed as a stream of discrete entities or energy packets called photons, each carrying a quantum energy hn, and momentum h/l, where h is a universal const = Planck’s const = x Js = x eVs From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O.

The first image at the top left is obtained under extremely low exposure and the subsequent images are obtained with increasing exposure of approximately one order of magnitude between each image. The slight attenuation of the X-ray photons by Lincoln provides the image. The image sequence clearly shows the discrete nature of x-rays, and hence their description in terms of photons.

Cathode ray tube (CRT) (hence, in vacuum).
Young’s double-slit experiment with electrons involves an electron gun and two slits in a Cathode ray tube (CRT) (hence, in vacuum). Electrons from the filament are accelerated by a 50 kV anode voltage to produce a beam that Is made to pass through the slits. The electrons then produce a visible pattern when they strike A fluorescent screen (e.g., a TV screen), and the resulting visual pattern is photographed. SOURCE: Pattern from C. Jonsson, D.

De Broglie Relationship

Time-Independent Schrödinger Equation
There is a general equation that describes this wave-like behavior and, with the appropriate potential energy and boundary conditions, will predict the results of experiments. The equation is called “Schrödinger equation” and it forms the foundations of quantum theory. In EM theory, a traveling EM wave resulting from a sinusoidal current oscillations, or The traveling voltage wave on a long transmission line, can generally be described by a traveling wave equation of the form where E(x) = Eoexp(jkx) represents the spatial dependence, which is separate from the time variation. We note that the time dependence is harmonic and therefore predictable. For this reason, we put aside the exp(-jwt) term until we need the instantaneous magnitude of the voltage. Born suggested there may be a similar wave function for the electron, which is Represented by Y(x,t). The amplitude squared represent the probability of finding Electron per unit distance. From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

is the probability of finding the electron per unit volume at
x,y,z at time t is the probability of finding the electron in a small elemental volume dxdydz at x, y z at time t Only |Y|2 has meaning, not Y, the latter function need not be real; it can be complex function with real and imaginary parts. For this reason, we tend to use Y*Y where Y* is the complex conjugate of Y, instead of |Y|2 to represent the probability per unit volume. To obtain the wavefunction Y(x,t) for the electron, we need to know how the electron interacts with its environment. This is embodied in its potential energy function V(x,t) because the net force the electron experiences is given by is the distance between the electron and the proton. From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

is called the time-independent Schrodinger equation. It is given by
If the PE of electron is time independent, then the spatial and temporal dependences Of Y(x,t) can be separated, and the total wavefunction Y(x,t) of e- can be written as Where Y(x) is the electron wavefunction that describes only the spatial behavior, and E is the energy of e-. The fundamental equation that describes the electron’s behavior by determining Y(x) is called the time-independent Schrodinger equation. It is given by This is a second-order differential equation. In 3-D, it becomes The notation (∂ψ/∂x) differentiates ψ(x,y,z) with respect to x but keeping y and z const From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

Steady-state probability distribution of electron is given by
Two important boundary conditions are often used: Y must be continuous ∂ψ/∂x must be continuous Y must be single-valued and smooth, without any discontinuities From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

The enforcement of these boundary conditions results in strict requirements on the wavefunction y(x), as a result of which only certain wavefunctions are acceptable. These wavefunctions are called the eigenfunctions (characteristic functions) of the system., and they determine the behavior and energy of the electron under steady- state conditions. The eigenfunctions y(x) are also called stationary states, in as much as we are only considering steady-state behavior. Example 3.5 solve the schrodinger eq for a free electron whose energy is E. Solution Since the e- is free, its potential energy is zero, V = 0. This leads to Solving the differential equation, we get y(x) = Aejkx or Be-jkx Traveling waves to the x and –x directions. Thus, free e- has a traveling wave solution with a wavenumber k = 2p/l, that can have any value. The energy of electron is Simply KE, so From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

p = h/l Its momentum is given by or
This is the de Brogile relationship. The probability distribution for the e- is which is constant over the entire space. Thus, the electron can be anywhere between x = -∞ and x = +∞. The uncertainty ∆x in its position is infinite. Since the electron has a well-defined wavenumber k, its momentum p is also well-defined by virtue of p = hk/2p. The uncertainty ∆p in its momentum is thus zero. From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

Infinite potential well: a confined electron

Its PE is zero inside that region and infinite outside.
The electron cannot escape because it would need an infinite PE. The probability |y|2 of finding an electron per unit volume is zero outside 0 < x < a. Thus, y = 0 when x <= 0 and x >= a, and y is determined by the Schrodinger eq in 0 < x < a with V = 0. Therefore, in region 0 < x < a This is a second-order linear differential equation. As a general solution, we take where k is some constant. We note that y(0) = 0; therefore B = -A so that Substitute to relate the energy E to k. Thus where px= ±hk/2p From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

ka = np, where n = 1, 2, 3 … called a quantum number
k is a wavenumber and is determined by the boundary condition at x = a where y = 0, or y(a) = 2Ajsin ka = 0 ka = np, where n = 1, 2, 3 … called a quantum number For each n, there’s a special wavefunction called eigenfunction. For each n, there is a special k value, kn = np/a, and special energy value En called eigenenergies of the system A is determined from the normalization condition. The total probability of finding the electron in the whole region 0 < x < a is unity. From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

The resulting wavefunction for the electron is
The ground state, lowest energy state corresponds to n = 1. Energy is not zero! The node of wavefunction is defined as the point where y = 0 inside the well. The energy increases as the number of nodes increases in a wavefunction. The energy differences between the two consecutive energy levels, as follows: As a increases to macroscopic dimensions, a  ∞, the electron is completely free and ∆E  0. Since ∆E = 0, the energy of a completely free electron is continuous. The energy of a confined electron, however, is quantized, and ∆E depends on the dimension (or size) of the potential well confining the electron Confined electron  energy is quantized Free electron  energy is continuous The symmetry of a wavefunction is called parity. Whenever the PE function V(x) exhibits symmetry about a certain point C, for example, about x = 0.5a, then the wavefunctions have either even parity (such as y1, y3 … that are symmetric) or have Odd parity (such as y2, y4 … that are antisymmetric).

Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle
We cannot exactly and simultaneously know both the position and momentum of a particle along a given coordinate. There will be an uncertainty ∆x in the position and an uncertainty ∆px in the momentum of the particle and these uncertainties will be related by Heisenberg’s uncertainty relationship. Heisenberg uncertainty principle for position and momentum These uncertainties are not in any way a consequence of the accuracy of a measure- ment or the precision of an instrument. Rather, they are the theoretical limits to what we can determine about a system. Heisenberg uncertainty principle for energy and time It is important to note that the uncertainty relationship applies only when the position and momentum are measured in the same direction (such as the x direction). Hence, for example, ∆x∆py can be zero. From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

between C and E and emerge on the other side of hill at E.
(a) The roller coaster released from A can at most make it to C, but not to E. Its PE at A is less than the PE at D. When the car is at the bottom, its energy is totally KE. CD is the energy barrier that prevents the care from making it to E. In quantum theory, on the other hand, there is a chance that the care could tunnel (leak) through the potential energy barrier between C and E and emerge on the other side of hill at E. (b) The wavefunction for the electron incident on a potential energy barrier (V0). The incident And reflected waves interfere to give 1(x). There is no reflected wave in region III.

potential barrier and appear on the other side; it will leak thru.
Classically, just like the roller coaster, the electron should bounce back and thus be confined in the region x < 0, because its total energy E is less than Vo. In the quantum world, however, there is a distinct possibility that the electron will “tunnel” thru the potential barrier and appear on the other side; it will leak thru. To show this, we solve the Schrodinger eq. We divide the electron’s space in to 3 regions, I, II, III. Solve for each region, to obtain yI(x), yII(x), yIII(x). In regions I and III, y(x) must be traveling waves, as there is no PE. In region II, E – Vo is negative, so the general solution of the schrodinger eq is the sum of an exponentially decaying function and an exponentially increasing function. where Because the electron is traveling toward the right in region III, there is no reflected wave, so C2 = 0.

Energy of the electron due to its magnetic moment interacting with a magnetic field
In the presence of an external magnetic field B, the electron has an additional energy term that arises from the interaction of these magnetic moments with B. Potential energy of a magnetic moment where  is the angle between orbital and B. Energy is min when morbital (the magnet) and B are parallel, q = 0.  A magnetic moment in a magnetic field experiences a torque that tries to rotate the magnetic moment to align the moment with the field.  A magnetic moment in a nonuniform magnetic field experiences force that depends on the orientation of the dipole.

Pauli exclusion principle: (based on experimental observations).
No two electrons within a given system (e.g. an atom) may have all four identical Quantum numbers, n, l, ml and ms. A wavefunction denoted by yn,l,ml,ms, as an electronic state. For example, an e- with quantum numbers given by 2, 1, 1, ½ will have a wave function yn,l,ml,ms = y2,l,1,1/2 and Is said to be in the state 2p, ml = 1 and spin up. Its energy will be E2p. The orbital motion of an electron is determined by n, l, and ml, whereas ms determines the spin direction (up or down). Suppose two electrons are in the same orbital state with identical n, l, ml. By the Pauli exclusion principle, they would have to spin in the opposite directions. One would have to spin up, the other down. e- are spin paired.

Hund’s rule: Electrons in the same n, l orbitals prefer their spins to be parallel (same ms). Reason: If electrons enter the same ml state by pairing their spins (different ms), their quantum numbers n, l ml will be the same and their will both occupy the same region of space (same yn,l,ml orbital). They will then experience a large Coulombic repulsion and will have a large Coulombic potential energy. On the other hand, if they parallel their spins (same ms), they will each have a different ml and will therefore occupy different regions of space ( different yn,l,ml), thereby reducing their Coulombic repulsion.

The principle of the LASER
The principle of the LASER. (a) Atoms in the ground state are pumped up to the energy level E3 by incoming photons of energy hu13 = E3-E1. (b) Atoms at E3 rapidly decay to the metastable state at energy level E2 by emitting photons or emitting lettice vibrations. hu32 = E3-E2. From Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices, Third Edition, S.O. Kasap (© McGraw-Hill, 2005)

(c) As the states at E2 are metastable, they quickly become populated and there is a population inversion between E2 and E1. (d) A random photon of energy hu21 = E2-E1 can initiate stimulated emission. Photons from this stimulated emission can themselves further stimulate emissions leading to an avalanche of stimulated emissions and coherent photons being emtitted.
