# 402-0255-00L Introduction to Solid State Physics

Semester | Autumn Semester 2020 |

Lecturers | K. Ensslin |

Periodicity | yearly recurring course |

Language of instruction | German |

Abstract | The course provides an introduction to solid state physics, covering several topics that are later discussed in more detail in other more specialized lectures. The central topics are: solids and their lattice structures; interatomic bindings; lattice dynamics, electronic properties of insulators, metals, semiconductors, transport properties, magnetism, superconductivity. |

Objective | Introduction to Solid State Physics. |

Content | The course provides an introduction to solid state physics, covering several topics that are later discussed in more detail in other more specialized lectures. The central topics are: solids and their lattice structures; interatomic bindings; lattice dynamics, thermal properties of insulators; metals (classical and quantum mechanical description of electronic states, thermal and transport properties of metals); semiconductors (bandstructure and n/p-type doping); magnetism, superconductivity. |

Lecture notes | The script will be available on moodle. |

Literature | Ibach & Lüth, Festkörperphysik C. Kittel, Festkörperphysik Ashcroft & Mermin, Festkörperphysik W. Känzig, Kondensierte Materie |
