fermi surface

Usage: usually capitalized F
: a theoretical geometric surface that consists of points representing the wavelength and direction of propagation of electrons with energies at the Fermi level in an atom of a solid material, that reflects the material's electronic structure, and that is used to characterize or predict the material's physical properties
