Optical properties and spectroscopy  of solids. Electrical properties (insulators, semiconductors, conductors, superconductors, ionic conductors) Collective magnetism Mechanical properties. Simple quantum mechanical calculations in solids

Teaching methods

  • Lecture about foundations of solid state theory
  • Introduction into WIEN2k
