Single Impurity Scattering

Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 7)


In this chapter we examine (using the techniques developed in Chap.4) a model hamiltonian describing the problem of a substitutional impurity in a perfect periodic lattice. The hamiltonian is given by H = H 0 + H 1 where H 0 is a periodic TBH of the type studied in Chap.5 and H 1 describes the change of the potential as a result of the impurity and is given by
$$ H_1 = |\ell > \varepsilon < \ell | $$
