EPHY 4500 - Electronic Properties of Materials (3)

Prerequisites: Permission of instructor. This course will introduce students to elements of solid state physics.  The course is intended to create the background required to understand the physics of solid state device operations.  The course will prepare students for advanced courses in solid state quantum electronics.  We will develop the fundamental concepts of the band structure of crystalline materials required for understanding of many-particle phenomena such as electronic transport, optical conductivity, and thermal properties of materials.  Specific topics will include properties of advanced low-dimensional materials (surfaces and interfaces, quantum wires, quantum dots, organic semiconductors).  The course is designed to provide the opportunity for students from different backgrounds to undertake a study and research in solid state electronic materials engineering.
