APME801
Solid State Physics

 

Course Description

In this course, the behavior of atoms and shared electrons in solids will be described by classical physics and quantum mechanics. The discussion of solid with crystalline structure will be one of the emphases. Some properties of crystal such as defects, disorder and thermal vibration will be studied. Then, band theory will be investigated. The physics of p-n junction semiconductor will also be introduced. Materials will be classified by models of magnetism as well as electric properties.
