What is the Fermi energy of a single hydrogen atom?
- Ground state of hydrogen is -13.6 eV, next state is -3.4 eV. Fermi energy Ef is somewhere between -13.6 and -3.4 at absolute zero temperature.
- other than absolute zero temperature Ef wont change, but the fermi function will be changed. the shape of the fermi function will not be a step potential anymore, though the Ef will remain unchanged.
is my idea right?
What is the numerical value of fermi energy of a hydrogen atom?
