  • The development of the electron theory of metals from Drude’s free electron picture to Bloch’s quantum mechanical treatment of electrons in crystal lattices reflects in structure the evolution of quantum mechanics itself. As in that development, the steps leading to the quantum theory of metals may be divided into three periods: classical, 1900-26; semi-classical, 1926-8; and modern, late 1928 onwards. The classical period was dominated by the model of Drude and Lorentz in which a metal… CONTINUE READING
