What variable is on the horizontal axis?

Hello,

What variable is the horizontal axis measuring in the MSL Simulator Tool? I am referring to the graph on the far right, where the vertical axis is measuring energy in eV.

Thanks.

    For 1D materials, 0 is Gamma and the right side is k = pi/a where a is the unit cell length.

      The left side of the x-axis is 0 or Gamma.
