Despite its success in reproducing the approach of C V 0 as T 0, the

Einstein model is clearly deficient at very low T. What might be wrong with

the assumptions it makes?

Discrete allowed energies: En n

n 0, 1, 2, ...

Pieter Debye succeeded Einstein as professor of physics in Zrich, and soon

developed a more sophisticated (but still approximate) treatment of atomic

vibrations in solids.

Debyes model of a solid:

3N normal modes (patterns) of oscillations

Spectrum of frequencies from = 0 to max

Treat solid as continuous elastic medium (ignore details of atomic structure)

This changes the expression for CV

because each mode of oscillation

contributes a frequency-dependent

heat capacity and we now have to

integrate over all :

CV (T )

N ( ) C

(k ) is called the

dispersion relation of

the solid, and here it is

linear (no dispersion!)

By contrast to a continuous solid, a real solid is not uniform on an atomic

scale, and thus it will exhibit dispersion. Consider a 1-D chain of atoms:

M

In equilibrium:

For atom s,

p = atom label

p = 1 nearest neighbors

p = 2 next nearest neighbors

cp = force constant for atom p

2u s

Fs M 2 c p u s p u s

For the expected harmonic

traveling waves, we can write

Thus:

u s ue i ( kxs t )

Mu (i ) 2 e i ( ksa t ) c p ue i ( k ( s p ) a t ) ue i ( ksa t )

p

Or:

p

So:

xs = sa = position of atom s

and the only unique

solutions that are

the range:

In a 3-D atomic lattice we

expect to observe 3 different

branches of the dispersion

relation, since there are two

mutually perpendicular

transverse wave patterns in

addition to the longitudinal

pattern we have considered.

Along different directions in

the reciprocal lattice the

shape of the dispersion

relation is different. But

note the resemblance to the

simple 1-D result we found.

able to calculate N() and evaluate CV in the Debye model.

First step: simplify problem by using periodic boundary conditions for the

linear chain of atoms:

We assume atoms s

and s+N have the

same displacement

the lattice has periodic

behavior, where N is

very large.

s+N-1

L = Na

s

s+1

x = sa

x = (s+N)a

s+2

Since atoms s and s+N have the same displacement, we can write:

us us N

ue i ( ksa t ) ue i ( k ( s N ) a t )

allowed k values:

allowed solutions (k values) is:

Thus, in 1-D:

n 1, 2, 3, ...

independent of k, so

the density of modes

in k-space is uniform

Now for a 3-D lattice we can apply periodic boundary

conditions to a sample of N1 x N2 x N3 atoms:

Now we know from before

that we can write the

differential # of modes as:

We carry out the integration

in k-space by using a

of a constant surface with

We get the result:

A very similar result holds for N(E) using constant energy surfaces for the

density of electron states in a periodic lattice!

This equation gives the prescription for calculating the density of modes

N() if we know the dispersion relation (k).

We can now set up the Debyes calculation of the heat capacity of a solid.

We know that we need to evaluate an upper limit for the heat capacity integral:

CV (T )

max

N ( ) C

( , T ) d

If the dispersion relation is known, the upper limit will be the maximum value.

But Debye made several simple assumptions, consistent with a uniform,

isotropic, elastic solid:

3 independent polarizations (L, T1, T2) with equal propagation speeds vg

continuous, elastic solid: = vgk

max given by the value that gives the correct number of modes per polarization (N)

First we can evaluate

the density of modes:

d

vg

dk

N ( )

directions in k-space are the same, so

the constant surface is a sphere of

radius k, and the integral reduces to:

Giving:

Next we need to find the upper limit for the integral over the allowed range of

frequencies.

Since there are N atoms in the solid, there are N unique

modes of vibration for each polarization. This requires:

Now the pieces are in place to evaluate the heat capacity using the Debye

model! This is the subject of problem 5.2 in Myers book. Remember that

there are three polarizations, so you should add a factor of 3 in the expression

for CV. If you follow the instructions in the problem, you should obtain:

as follows:

In a real 3-D solid the dispersion relation will differ along different directions in

k-space. In general, for a p atom basis, there are 3 acoustic modes and p-1

groups of 3 optical modes, although for many propagation directions the two

transverse modes (T) are degenerate.

The optical modes generally have frequencies near = 1013 1/s, which is in

the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Thus, when IR radiation is

incident upon such a lattice it should be strongly absorbed in this band of

frequencies.

At right is a transmission spectrum

for IR radiation incident upon a

very thin NaCl film. Note the

sharp minimum in transmission

(maximum in absorption) at a

wavelength of about 61 x 10-4 cm,

or 61 x 10-6 m. This corresponds

to a frequency = 4.9 x 1012 1/s.

If instead we measured this spectrum for

LiCl, we would expect the peak to shift to

higher frequency (lower wavelength)

because MLi < MNaexactly what happens!

quantized unit of electromagnetic energy, a phonon is a quantized unit of

vibrational (elastic) energy.

is a wavevector k , which leads

No net mass transport occurs in a propagating lattice vibration, so the linear

momentum is actually zero. But phonons interacting with each other or with

electrons or photons obey a conservation law similar to the conservation of

linear momentum for interacting particles.

Lattice vibrations (phonons) of many different

frequencies can interact in a solid. In all

interactions involving phonons, energy must be

conserved and crystal momentum must be

conserved to within a reciprocal lattice vector:

Each BZ contains

about the lattice

Wigner-Seitz Cell--Construction

For any lattice of points, one way to define a unit cell is to connect each lattice

point to all its neighboring points with a line segment and then bisect each line

segment with a perpendicular plane. The region bounded by all such planes is

called the Wigner-Seitz cell and is a primitive unit cell for the lattice.

1-D lattice: Wigner-Seitz cell is the line

segment bounded by the two dashed

planes

rectangle bounded by the dashed planes

The Wigner-Seitz cell can be defined for any kind of lattice (direct or

reciprocal space), but the WS cell of the reciprocal lattice is also called the 1st

Brillouin Zone.

The 1st BZ is the region in reciprocal space containing

all information about

the k values in the 1st BZ correspond

to unique vibrational modes.

Any k outside this zone is mathematically

For 3-D lattices, the construction of the 1st Brillouin Zone leads to a

polyhedron whose planes bisect the lines connecting a reciprocal lattice point

to its neighboring points. We will see these again!

J. Anharmonic Properties of Solids

Two important physical properties that ONLY occur because of anharmonicity

in the potential energy function:

1.

2.

Thermal expansion

Thermal resistivity (or finite thermal conductivity)

Thermal expansion

In a 1-D lattice where each atom experiences the same potential energy

function U(x), we can calculate the average displacement of an atom from its

T=0 equilibrium position:

U ( x ) / kT

U ( x ) / kT

Thermal Expansion in 1-D

Evaluating this for the harmonic potential energy function U(x) = cx 2 gives:

carefullywhat can you conclude?

x 0!

independent of T !

Thus any nonzero <x> must come from terms in U(x) that go beyond x 2. For

HW you will evaluate the approximate value of <x> for the model function

U ( x) cx 2 gx 3 fx 4

(c, g , f 0 and gx 3 , fx 4 kT )

Why this form? On the next slide you can see that this function is a reasonable

model for the kind of U(r) we have discussed for molecules and solids.

Thermal Resistivity

When thermal energy propagates through a solid, it is carried by lattice waves

or phonons. If the atomic potential energy function is harmonic, lattice waves

obey the superposition principle; that is, they can pass through each other

without affecting each other. In such a case, propagating lattice waves would

never decay, and thermal energy would be carried with no resistance (infinite

conductivity!). Sothermal resistance has its origins in an anharmonic

potential energy.
