Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course gives an introduction to various concepts of condensed matter physics with emphasis on properties of solids.
The following topics are contained in the course: Symmetry and crystallography in 2 and 3 dimensions; crystal structures, thermodynamics and condensed matter phases; structure analysis of crystalline, quasicrystalline and amorphous matter; concept of the reciprocal lattice; point, line and surface imperfections; mechanical properties, free electron Fermi gas, transport properties, spin-dependent electric transport, energy bands, introduction to magnetism, plasmons and polaritons.

Assessment and permitted materials

The course will be assessed via a written module examination. No course materials, textbooks or smartphones will be allowed in the exam, but you may need a calculator. The examination will focus on assessing your understanding on the principles and phenomena in condensed matter physics.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

50% of the total points at the final exam.
50 - 62.49% grade 4
62.5 - 74.99% grade 3
75 - 87.49% grade 2
87.5 - 100% grade 1

Examination topics

The examination material comprises the contents of the lecture "Condensed Matter Physics" and the associated exercise. The course is to be regarded as one, single and inseparable entity together with the associated exercise class 260121 PUE, which is listed separately for technical reasons only. What we show in class will be worked upon and truly learned by individual and independent work on the homework sets of 260121 PUE, which will be distributed weekly.
