Electronic Optical and Magnetic Properties of Materials

ENG EC 577

This course in intended to develop an in depth knowledge of solid state concepts that are important for students in the areas of material science and electrical engineering. Specifically, this course focuses on the study of different apsect of solid state physics necessary to study technologically relevant crytalline and amorphous systems. Particular enphasis is placed on the study of the crystal structure, crystal diffraction and the related techniques used as diagnostic tools; the electronic, thermal, optical and magnetic properties of material systems important for electronics and photonics device applications. Furthermore the course will also consider the theory of superconductivity, the chemistry aspcts of solid state materials and will provide an introduction to solid state biophysics. This course complements EC 574 (Physics of semiconductor material) and EC575 (semiconductor devices) with its focus on technologically relevant structural, optical, thermal and magnetic material properties. Meets with ENG MS 577. Students may not receive credit for both.
