This course is about the electronic properties of materials and contains lectures about scattering, transport in metals, phonons and superconductivity.
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.
- 1. Electronics in a periodic potential
- 2. Scattering in metals
- Transport in metals
- 2. Phonons
- 3. Magnetism, free electrons and interactions
- 6. Landau theory on phase transitions
- 4. Macroscopic theory on superconductivity
- 5. Ginzburg-Landau theory
- 5. Strongly correlated systems
- 4. Microscopic theory on superconductivity
