PHYS-420 / 4 credits

Teacher: Carbone Fabrizio

Language: English


Summary

Solid State Physics IV provides a materials and experimental technique oriented introduction to the electronic and magnetic properties of strongly correlated electron systems. Established knowledge is complemented by current research trends, aiming to prepare the students for independent research.

Content

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

Solid state physics I and II or the equivalent to one of the book Aschroft & Mermin or Kittel

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Decide which experimental technique is suited to investigate a certain phenomenon or property
  • Interpret experimental data in the context of phenomena encountered during the course
  • Sketch the key electronic and magnetic properties of transition metal material classes

Transversal skills

  • Make an oral presentation.
  • Summarize an article or a technical report.
