Abstract

In this article, we suggest a fractal Kronig-Penny model which includes a fractal lattice, a fractal potential energy comb, and a fractal Bloch's theorem on thin Cantor sets. We solve the fractal Schr\"{o}dinger equation for a given potential, using an exact analytical method. We observe that the allowed band energies and forbidden bands in the fractal lattice are bigger than in the standard lattice. These results show the effect of fractal space-time or their fractal geometry  on energy levels.
