AUTHORIZED MEMORANDA

Students MUST count the number of pages in this examination question paper before beginning
to write, and report any discrepancy immediately to a proctor. This question paper has
15 pages.
This examination question paper MAY NOT be taken from the examination room.
There are 10 questions on the exam. Attempt all questions. Note that the questions are not equally
weighted.
I suggest you attempt the questions you know best first!
There are 124 marks. I think :-)

1. Basic Quantum Mechanics (12 Marks total):
(a) (3 Marks) For an electron in an infinite potential well write down:
i. The time independent Schrodinger’s Eq. with the appropriate potential.
ii. The appropriate boundary conditions.
iii. Describe why quantization of electron energy occurs.
(b) (2 marks) Sketch ψ(x) for the first few energy states.
(c) (1 Marks) Show how ψ(x) would change if the potential well was finite.

Basic Quantum Mechanics:(cont.)
(d) (4 Marks) Show (draw!) a characteristic solutions for ψ(x) for the case of two finite wells
“side by side” separated by a small distance for:
• E is less then the well depth. (For both symmetric and antisymmetric cases.)
• E is greater then the well depth.
(e) (2 Marks) How would you characterize the“interaction” between the two wells. Specifi-
cally could it be understood using a classical description of the physics.

2. Electrons in crystals (Total Marks 10):
When describing the electron behavior in materials we use an E versus k relationship (E(k)).
(a) (1 marks) Describe what this relationship is. Specifically what are E and k.
(b) (1 marks) What is the E(k) relationship for an electron in a single infinite well?
(c) (1 marks) What is the E(k) relationship for perfectly free electrons?
(d) (2 marks) Draw an E(k) relationship for free but periodic electrons? How does it differ
from the perfectly free electron case?
(e) (1 marks) Draw a characteristic E(k) relationship for electrons in a periodic potential
with a barrier present.
(f) (2 marks) For this case how does the barrier height/width effect the relationship?
(g) (2 marks) When we have an electric field present what information about the electron
behavior does the E(k) relationship give us?
