Description:

The course aims at first-yeat graduate students who have not studied Solid State Physics or have only on an elementary level. 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:

  • Solid State Physics, N.W. Ashcroft and N.D. Mermin
