Transient and steady-state analysis of electron transport in one-dimensional coupled quantum-box structures The scattering rates in the mini-Brillouin zone are characterized by several large peaks reflecting the singularities of the 1D density of states and the features of the miniband structure. The phonon wave vectors connecting electronic states in different valleys are labelled in red. Empty and filled circles. The dispersion relation for the excitations spectra in a periodic medium is periodic in reciprocal space, that is, in the space of pseudo-momentum (-space). The key technique is to identify operators that combine to annihilate the edge state in the effective one-dimensional (1D) model with momentum along the edge. We propose an interferometric method to measure Z2 topological invariants of time-reversal invariant topological insulators realized with optical lattices in two and three dimensions. While the optical gyrotropy makes the PBG bandwidths tunable by a bias magnetic field, the bicrystalline misalignment modifies and can even trump this magnetic tunability. The time-reversal invariant momentum (TRIM) points include one Γ, one T, three L, and three F symmetry points. The concept of a Brillouin zone was first developed by Léon Brillouin (1889-1969), a French physicist. O B A C D Figure 2: The solid circles indicate points of the reciprocal lattice.
