Advanced Solid State Physics


Thermal conductivity, the Wiedemann-Franz law and the collision integral for electron-electron scattering.

This course is about the electronic properties of materials and contains lectures about scattering, transport in metals, phonons and superconductivity. Study Goals: The goal of the course is twofold: to present modern concepts of the electronic properties of the materials, and to develop the ability to read (and understand) scientific papers. The first goal will be achieved through a series of lectures and sets of exercises. A considerable attention is devoted to superconductivity, not only because superconductors are a part of the research interest of to a number of groups of the former Applied Physics department, but mostly because they illustrate a number of important concepts in the solid state physics. For the second goal, we will organize students' presentations of selected scientific papers.
