Course Description

This course will introduce the concept of electrons in solids. Specifically, it will describe how electrons interact with each other, electromagnetic radiation and the crystal lattice to give the material its inherent electrical, optical and magnetic properties. Semiconductors, metals, insulators, polymers and superconductors will be discussed. Device applications of physical phenomena are considered, including electrical conductivity and doping, transistors, photodetectors and photovoltaics, luminescence, light emitting diodes, lasers, optical phenomena, photonics, ferromagnetism.
