Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture provides an introduction to low-dimensional solids. We will gain understanding on how low dimensional solids are defined from the atom to large scale solids.
We will analyze the formation of clusters of different nature. The carbon atom will be used as example to understand how allotropes with the same stoichiometry can project into different structures with unique properties. Carbon nanotubes and graphene will be used to deepen into these concepts. The lecture also covers examples of spectroscopic and microscopic methods currently used for research on the physical properties of low-dimensional solids.

Assessment and permitted materials

The oral final examination is scheduled individually at the end of the semester.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The oral examination will focus on assessing the students' understanding of the physical principles and phenomena behind low dimensional solids and both microscopy and spectroscopy techniques covered during the lecture.

We will emphasize on understanding the fundamental concepts rather than looking for derivations of complex formulas.

Examination topics

The material of the entire lecture will be included.
