According to any freshmen chemistry textbook, in NaCl one electron is transferred from the Sodium to the Chlorine. The occupied 3p states form the valence band, while the empty sodium states hybridize into a conduction band. We will put these idealized ideas to the test.
This tutorial will teach you how to:
