Band structure and optical properties of alkali metal halides
- 49 Downloads
Optical spectra, photoemission spectra, and photoconductivity spectra of alkali metal halides are analyzed using energy band structure calculations and selection rules for direct and indirect transitions. The main feature of the band structure of MeN3 (Me: Na, K, Rb, Cs) as proposed by the authors is the presence of two conductivity bands, one anionic and the other cationic in nature. A weak dispersion of the valence subband indicates that phonons may yield a significant contribution to the observed spectra. All of the optical and photoemission spectra so far reported for the metal azides may be explained on the basis of the proposed band model.
