Particles are mass m1 = 0 5 and m2 = 1 0. The spring constant is = 1 0. = acoustic q for which vibration frequency linearly approaches → 0 as q → 0, and there is an optic branch = optic q for which = 0 as q → 0. As one can see from Fig. 12, the acoustic branch is capable of propagating lowfrequency sound waves the group velocity of which, g = / q, is a constant for long wavelengths. 10 For the one-dimensional case, one branch of the dispersion relation occurs for each atom per unit cell of the lattice.

The charging energy is discrete because the electron has a single value for its charge. The charging energy becomes large and measurable at room temperature in devices that have a very small capacitance. Such devices are usually of nanometer size. As an example, consider a very small sphere of metal. The capacitance of a small sphere can be found by considering two spherical conducting metal shells of radii r1 and r2 , where r1 < r2 . Assume that there is a charge +Q on the inner surface of the shell radius r2 and a charge −Q on the outer surface of the shell radius r1 .

In the example, the inverse decay time constant is taken to be −1 = 20 fs. The function plotted in Fig. 19(a) is E t = y∼ E0 sin t e− t , where E0 = 1 V m−1 . 19(b) illustrates spatial decay of an oscillating electric field.
