Energy Band structure in Noncrystalline material

  1. Apr 19, 2012 #1
    In crystalline material, bands arise due to the interaction of electron waves with periodic potentials.
    Can anyone please explain the origin of energy bands in non-crystalline material..couldn't find relevant links on Google.
