At first, concept of temperature and heat will be given. It will be extended to the mechanism in the structure and properties of functional materials. Recent development in high-technology and nano-scale materials will be also given. The latter half of this class is related to magnetic materials. Starting from Schr?dinger equation, the class deals the electronic state in crystal fields and the spin interaction to understand the magnetism of various materials.
2.Laws of thermodynamics
4.Crystal structure and lattice dynamics
5.Plastic crystal and liquid crystal
6.Classy state and glass transition
7.Ferroelectric materials and solid state ionics
8.Basis of quantum mechanics
10.Angular momentum and quantum number
11.Crystal field and d electron
12.Molecular orbital and exchange interaction
13.Molecular field theory I : para- and ferromagnetism
14.Molecular field theory II : antiferro- and ferrimagnetism
Copies of some books, papers, and review articles on physical chemistry and solid state physics are used.
The achievement is evaluated in written reports during the class and the examination at the end of semester.
