PHYS3153: Solid State Physics
Offered: Fall odd years

Prerequisites: PHYS 2114, 2124; CHEM 2124.

Co-requisite: MATH 3243

An introduction to the physics governing the crystalline state of matter. Modern theories describing lattice vibrations, energy bands, crystal binding, and optical properties are presented. These ideas are then applied to the understanding of technologically important areas such as superconductivity, doped semiconductors, ferroelectric materials, and photorefractivity.
