Density of states

[-density of states-]

[Picture stolen from Yiming Qiu's pages.]

Density of states N(E) (horizontal) as a function of energy E (vertical). The term `density od states' means the number of electron states available around a certain energy E.

The situation shown here is for a strongly disordered sample; the density of states in between Landau levels does not drop to zero.
