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
Methoden:
  • flipped classroom in reduced format if desired/possible; slides are made available in advance

  • lecture (live or online, depending on possiblities)

  • discussion between students (live or using breakout rooms)

  • quizzes and polls

  • questions at any time live or using the chat-function

  • discussion forum moodle platform

Assessment and permitted materials

Oral examination: understanding solid state physics will be examined. Provided slides may be used.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Minimal requirement: Basic understanding of solid state physics (passed).
E.g.,: what is a crystal? How can the structure of solid matter be determined? How can electronic, thermal, magnetic, optical, elastic properties of crystalline matter be understood and which techniques for exploring the properties can be used?
Two to four central questions will be asked:

  1. did not unterstand basic concepts=>nicht genügend

  2. basic concepts understood=>genügend

  3. +able to properly explain these concepts=>befriedigend

  4. + able to apply these concepts=>gut

  5. +exceeding basic concepts (e.g., calculations)=>sehr gut
