Contents

  • Structure of solids in real and reciprocal space
  • Lattice dynamics and phonon band structure
  • Thermal properties of insulators
  • Electronic properties of metals and semiconductors: band structure and transport
  • Optical properties from microwaves to UV
  • Magnetism
  • Superconductivity
  • Defects, surfaces, disorder

 

Objectives

After completing the course the students

  • have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of condensed matter physics.
  • they understand the principles of formation of condensed matter and have learnt experimental methods to study structural properties. They are familiar with the reciprocal space.
  • they understand fundamental electronic models, become aquainted with bandstructure and can describe simple crystalline materials as metals, seminconductors, and insulators.
  • they can apply the basic concepts to understand optical and magnetic properties of matter and superconductivity.
  • they know the relevant experimental methods for probing structural, optical, magnetic, and electronic properties of condensed matter and can analyse the experimental results.
  • get insight into modern trends in experimental condensed matter physics.
