Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to describe symmetries, electronic structures and energy bands in solids, to calculate density of states, to explain optical properties and spectroscopy, to summarise electrical and mechanical properties as well as to operate simple quantum mechanical calculations in solids.

 

Subject of course
