Example text

By defects or by thermal motion of the ions), then their motion is described as diffusive instead. In most materials, this scattering is what limits the conductivity. Take, for instance, the example of copper. 8 × 105 ms−1. In tungsten, the Fermi velocity is expected to be vF ≈ 4−5 × 105 ms−1 [14]. However, the electron drift velocity in metals such as these is ~1 mms−1 – in this case a factor of 108 lower than the Fermi velocity! This is all due to scattering of electrons from defects and thermal motion of the ions rendering their motion diffusive rather than ballistic.

These functions describe the angular dependence of the solutions to the Schrödinger equation for a spherically symmetric potential using spherical polar coordinates. The spherical harmonics are sketched in many reference books, for instance, The Cambridge Handbook of Physics Formulas, G. Woan, CUP (2000).
