Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course is in the undergraduate studies programme 'physics teachers'. An overview on condensed matter physics and its properties is given (solid state physics). The following topics are discussed: Crystals and crystal systems, lattices, reciprocal lattice, crystal structure determination, diffraction, crystal growth, scattering and the relation to structure using x-rays and neutrons; metals: (Drude's & Sommerfeld's models), electrons in a periodic medium, Bloch-theorem, electron dynamics, Fermi surfaces, phonons, harmonic crystal, classification of solid state (binding types); Electrical properties: semiconductors, insulators. Magnetism: dia-& paramagnetism, superconduction, ferroic materials, domain states, noncrystalline materials: quasicrystals, polymers, glasses, liquid crystals; photonic crystals, anharmonic effects, nonlinear phenomena; Experimental techniques: selected methods (TEM, SEM, Raman, DMA, AFM,x-ray,neutron diffraction); defects

Assessment and permitted materials

Oral examination

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Understanding of the course: what is a crystal? How can the structure of solid matter be determined? Which properties (electronic, thermal, magnetic, optical, elastic) has crystalline matter, how can they be understood and which techniques for exploring the properties can be used? Solid state and its applications in every day life.

Examination topics
