I'm doing a literature review on dispersion relations, and i've been told that if i can derive the phonon dispersion relation, it would help my review. So i was wondering if anybody could help me with the derivation either through Quantum-mechanical approach or Semi-classical treatment of lattice vibrations. Any reference or extra guidance would be sincerely appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
