class
Bands
(k_path, energy)¶ Band structure along a path in kspace
Attributes
k_path ( Path
) The path in reciprocal space along which the bands were calculated. E.g. constructed usingmake_path()
.energy (array_like) Energy values for the bands along the path in kspace. Methods
plot
([point_labels])Line plot of the band structure plot_kpath
([point_labels])Quiver plot of the kpath along which the bands were computed

(point_labels=None, **kwargs)¶ Line plot of the band structure
Parameters: point_labels : List[str]
Labels for the
k_points
