This is part 1 of a two-part video on how to make sense of Brillouin zones, a central concept in the physics of solids. This first part contains the introductory material for a demonstration of aliasing, which appears in the second part.Video posted for use under Creative Commons Licence - by-nc-sa...

This is part 2 of a two-part video on how to make sense of Brillouin zones, a central concept in the physics of solids. This second part contains a demonstration of aliasing, which is the concept that enables higher Brillouin zones to be reduced back into the first Brillouin zone.Video posted for us...
