Abstract

The formalism of electromagnetics can be applied to describe collisionless (ballistic) propagation, reflection, refraction, interference, and diffraction of electron waves in semiconductor crystals. This technique is complementary to applying the formalism of quantum-mechanical solid-state electronics to electromagnetic propagation in periodic dielectric structures as is done in photonic band structure research.
