Cursusdoelen
  • The student understands the basic principles of solid states physics (crystals, phonons and electrons). 
  • The student understands the band structure in solids and is able to derive electronic and optical properties of semiconductors and metals from it. 
  • The student acquires as quantitative understanding of collective quantum phenomena in solids such as magnetism and superconductivity.
  • The students is able to apply concepts of transport theory in solids to actual macroscopic and mesoscopic devices 
  • The student will have an understanding of important quantum phenomena of solids in magnetic fields
Inhoud

The course will give a broad introduction to one of the major pillars of modern physics. Based on known principles from mechanics, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics and statistical physics the student will be confronted with solid state physics with a particular emphasis on the electronic properties of solids. We will also relate this knowledge to more current topics of condensed-matter research in Nijmegen such as semiconductors (e.g. graphene), correlated electron systems (superconductivity and magnetism) and soft condensed matter. Specific topics treated in the course are given below.

 
Onderwerpen
• Electronic bandstucture of solids
• Transport phenomena in solids
• Magnetism: Para-, dia- and ferromagnetism, ferrimagnetism and antiferromagnetism, magnetic resonances
• Superconductivity: BCS theory, high Tc superconductivity
• Semicoductors and devices
• An introduction to low-dimensional electron systems and nanostructures
• Quantum effects in magnetic fields (Shubnikov-deHaas, deHaas van Alphen, (fractional) quantum Hall effect)
