PHYS-444 Solid State I
Spring for 2017-2018
This course is an introduction to fundamental phenomena in solid state and condensed matter physics. Topics will include crystal lattices, reciprocal lattices, phonons, thermal properties of solids, electronic transport, energy bands, semiconductors, and superconductors. There will be a focus on materials that are nanometer size in one or more dimensions and the exploration of properties that are quantum confined in two, one, or zero dimensions.
Credits: 3 credits
