 Top Page > Browsing units in the band plots Date: 2016/06/03 00:57 Name: PR Can somebody please comment on the units of the band plots?I want to have E-K band plot which E is in Hartree and K is in units of 1/BohrSo as far as I know the units of E in band plot is eV so I easily convert it to Hartree by multiplying the E by 0.0367493.However I am not sure about the units of K. It seems that the units of K is in 1/A?So to calculate the effective mass is it enough to devide the K vercotr by 1.889725989 to convert the units to 1/Bohr and then calculate the curvature of E-K?Is the 2Pi/a already there in the k-spacing?I would be grateful if somebody can comment on this.

Ozaki Hi, The k-vector is given by k = ka*ra + kb*rb + kc*rcwith the reciprocal vectors ra, rb, and rc defined by ra = 2*pi/V b x crb = 2*pi/V c x arc = 2*pi/V a x b where x stands for cross product, and V is the volume of Brillouin given by a.(b x c).Then, k is defined in unit of 1/Bohr, not 1/A as you considered. Once you figure out the relations above, it is easy to convert them. Regards, TO Page:
