The course teaches the fundamentals of thermal and electrical properties of solids based on the mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum chemistry, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics.
The aim of this course is understanding of the atomic and electronic structure, specific heat, electric conductivity, optical property, magnetism of solid. These physical properties are explained for metal, semiconductor, and insulators.
By the end of this course, students will:
1. Have learned the method to describe the atomic and electronic structure of solids, and understand the properties based on this method.
2. Have gained fundamental of specific heat, electric conductivity, optical property, and magnetism of solid.
3. Have acquired fundamental of the difference in characters of solid among metal, semiconductor, and insulator.
Lattice, Reciprocal lattice, Electric conductivity, Specific heat, Phonon, Band structure, Fermi surface, Band gap, Plasmon, Paramagnetism, Ferromagnetism, Antiferromagnetism
