    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I don't recall ever hearing the expression "dispersion energy" but here are some suggestions:

    1) Could it be energy dispersion. This would be a plot of E vs. k otherwise known as the band structure.
    2) Could it be the diffusion energy? This is a parameter which appears in the Drude theory of metals and is used to model the dielectric function of semiconductors in the Drude-Lorentz model.
