**Electron Crystallography of Soluble and Membrane Proteins: Methods and Protocols**

The fundamental precept of electron crystallography is to calculate a 3D density map by way of combining the amplitudes acquired from electron diffraction styles with the experimental levels calculated from photos of two-dimensional crystals of membrane or soluble proteins. This know-how is especially good built and has produced a couple of atomic versions of membrane proteins in a lipid setting.

77) we used vector identity and a divergence theorem to extract a surface integral and equate it to zero. 87) where Dω (r) is an eigenstate displacement field. 87) is proportional to the electric energy E D = 1/(8π ) V drε −1 (r)|Dω (r)|2 of the modal field, which, for a harmonic mode, is also equal to the field magnetic energy E H = 1/(8π) V dr|Hω (r)|2 . In the same manner as in quantum mechanics, the variational theorem holds in the case of a Hermitian Maxwell Hamiltonian stating that the lowest frequency harmonic mode (ground state) |Hg with eigenvalue ωg2 minimizes the electromagnetic energy functional: E f (H) = H| Hˆ |H .

6), that is, ω2 (kt ) = ω2 (|kt |). 113) is degenerate with respect to the direction of a transverse wave vector. 114) is also a solution with the same eigenvalue for any θ˜ . Therefore, a general solution can be written in terms of a linear combination of all the degenerate solutions: 2π H(r)kt Cartesian = 2π dθ˜ A(θ˜ )Rˆ (ˆz,θ) ˜ Hkt (r) = 0 ˜ exp ikt dθ˜ A(θ) −1 r (ˆz,θ˜ ) (ˆz,θ˜ ) Ukt (z). 115) is written in Cartesian coordinates. To rewrite it in cylindrical coordinates we use the fact that H(r)|Cartesian = (ˆz,θ ) H(ρ, θ, z)|cylindrical .

119) (hence exhibiting discrete bands). Generally, whenever there is confinement even in a single spatial direction (for example, confinement along the zˆ direction in Fig. 9(b)) solutions typically form discrete bands. Another example of this is presented in Fig. 10(c), where eigenfrequencies of the modes of a slab waveguide are plotted against k x , assuming k y = 0. The dielectric profile of a practical electromagnetic system always features an infinite dielectric region called cladding, which supports a continuum of delocalized radiation states.
