Solid State Physics II University of Tsukuba
We learn fundamental knowledge of solid state physics, i.e. crystal structure, wave diffraction and reciprocal lattice, thermal motion of atoms in crystal, electronic states in crystal. The thermal properties, transport phenomena, phase transitions and so on, in solids, will be discussed for understanding of advanced contents of materials science.
Acquire knowledge of phonons, crystal vibrations, thermal properties, and free energy Fermi gas.
Related to 2. Understanding ability of physical phenomena, and 4. Skills in the field of Micro Engineering and Nanoscience.
Students who have gained credits for Solid State Physics I
