Description:

The course aims at advanced junior students who has completed quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. Essential concepts of solid state physics will be introduced with a select number of examples, such as semiconductors, localization, superconductivity, and quantum magnetism. This course prepares students for frontier research in condensed matter physics. Old theories of metals, crystal structures, band structures, semiclassical transport, lattice dynamics and advanced topics will be covered. Modern experimental techniques will also be introduced.

Prerequisites:

Quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics

Reading List:

  1. Solid State Physics, N.W. Ashcroft and N.D. Mermin
  2. Introduction to Solid State Physics, C. Kittel
  3. Principles of the Theory of Solids, J.M. Ziman
