Learning Outcomes
Students get familiarized with Solid State background and learn to apply this knowledge to realistic examples of materials and properties focusing on magnetic and optical properties by voluntary Projects and Problem Solving. This module provides the connection between Physics and Materials Science which is necessary for a deeper understanding of materials properties.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
Major target of this course is to familiarize the students with magnetic (paramagnetism, ferromagnetism, ferrimagnetism, antiferromagnetism) and optical (Absorption and Scattering of electromagnetic radiation of solids, Non-linear interaction effects, non-elastic Raman and Brillouin scattering) interactions met in solid state. This course is divided in two sections: Section Α: Magnetism and Superconductivity: Introduction to Magnetism, Magnetic Environment-Interactions, Magnetic Ordering and magnetic structures, Introduction to Superconductivity, Phenomenology of Superconductivity, London equations, Basic principles of microscopic theory (BCS). Section B: Optical Properties: Phonon Interactions, Phonon-Electron Interactions, Optical properties, Crystal defects, Techniques of materials characterization.
