Students will learn about the electronic state, structure, dynamic properties of molecules and their interaction with light. Furthermore, based on statistical mechanics of molecular aggregates, students study the electronic state and electronic properties of molecular aggregates, and learn the concepts of metals, semiconductors, etc.
By the end of this course students will understand the electronic states and electronic properties of condensed matter and the behavior of metals and semiconductorsconcept of energy band structure.
Molecular partition function, Energy band structure, Optical peroperty of mol;ecular solids, Density of states, Fermi energy

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Course materials are provided during class if necessary.
None required.
Students’ course scores are based on understanding of basic concepts of atoms and molecules, and condensed matter.
Activities in class 20%, Final examination (or Report) 80%
