1 Classical free-electron model of a solid consisting of a box containing a gas of free particles which obey the kinetic theory. Electrical properties and the classical free-electron model 43 of gases. The number density of conduction electrons in a solid is typically 1028 m - 3 (10 22 cm - 3) which is of course about three orders of magnitude greater than for a typical gas at normal temperatures and pressures. This should cause us some concern over the viability of the model. Another concern is of course that the material can hardly be considered to be an empty box since there are ions located on the lattice sites and these are electrically charged.

It is also dependent on the frequency of light. We can also define an attenuation coefficient (X which represents the rate at which the intensity of light decays with depth in a material 1 dl 4nk A (X= - - - = - . 3 Reflectance How do we quantify the amount of light reflected at an interface? The optical reflectance R is the fraction of incident light that is reflected from a surface. The value of R is dependent on both the frequency of the light and the angle of incidence reflected intensity R=-----incident intensity It is usually measured using normal incidence of light.

These quantized vibrations are called phonons. This is an important result in which we can understand the quantization of the allowed lattice vibrations on the basis of a simple discrete classical model of the material. 3 Anharmonicity What are the immediate and obvious drawbacks of the simple spring model? Although the harmonic potential, or spring model, works quite well for small displacements of the atoms, it is quite easy to demonstrate that it must fail for large displacements. If we simply consider two atoms, the energy of the system when the atoms are moved closer together will be larger than the energy of the system if they are moved apart.
