Question description

When you put 10^23 atoms together into a crystalline form, the discrete electronic energy levels become bands. The main reason for the band gap formation is due to Bragg diffraction of electrons.

How does Bragg diffraction occur in a crystal with electrons inside?

What causes the energy levels to break into a "gap"

What is the difference between a conductor such as Cu and a semiconductor such as Si?
