Aims, contents and method of the course

Basic properties of solids:
a) Structure of solids (binding, crystal systems, diffraction), Lattice vibrations (molecular vibrations, phonons and pnonon spectroscopy), Electronic properties of materials (band model, density of states, effective mass and photon emission spectroscopy), Electron excitation (metall-isolator, semiconductors), Transport properties (heat transport, superconductivity and diffusion), Magnetism (Hund's Rules, Stoner model, para-, dia- and ferromagnetism).
b) Intoduction to modern experimental methods with special emphasis on current research results.
