The written exam takes place July 30th between 9 and 11 am.

The exam will take place in three different lecture halls at the same time: INF 306/1, 308/1 and 308/2.
Your room: Last names starting letters:
[A-J]: INF 306/1
[K-S]: INF 308/1
[T-Z]: INF 308/2


Please bring your own pocket calculator. Do not program it, it may only be used as a standard non-programmable support for calculating numbers.

You may bring a single DIN A4 paper with handwritten formulas. One-sided writing only.


For further in particular Corona related rules please refer to the email "Exam July 30th 9:00 h s.t." dated July 22nd.

Lecture (4 hours/week) and exercises (2 hours/week) with homework (8 Credit Points)


Lecturer: R. Klingeler / A. Reiser


Lecture time

Lectures will be given onlina via Zoom; invitation has been sent to registered students.

Tuesday, 11:15 - 13:00 h (INF 308, HS2)
Thursday, 11:15 - 13:00 h (INF 308, HS2)




Tutorials: Tue + Wed (Online via zoom; see top of page)

  • The tutorials will be held using Zoom. Your tutor will send you an invitation email. The tutorial dates and times remain unchanged with respect to the course catalog at LSF.
  • The homework is handed in via the upload tool in the tutorial database.
  • Please hand in pdf-files only for file handling reasons. Please do not send photographs in jpg or similiar picture formats. File size optimization is helpful in times of limited bandwidths ...
  • We recommend to use a scanner or scanner app, for example Microsoft Office Lens or others. Please scan the solutions to form a single pdf.



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.
