I have seen that the energy of the band structure is defined in the following form. How do you obtain this form of the equation? Additionally, how can you obtain the effect mass of the electron? Do you just manipulate algebraically the equation of the energy of the band structure and solve it for for the m_e*?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
