Physics 422
Electrons and Phonons in Solid-State Materials -
Spring 2018
J. A. Sauls

Lectures: Tuesday & Thursday, 11:00 am -12:20 pm
Where: Room: LG72 Tech Institute

This course is the third quarter in a graduate level course sequence on condensed matter and materials physics. This material in this quarter will be pretty self contained and focused primarily on kinetic theory, charge and heat transport by electrons and phonons in semiconductors, metals and superconductors. Thus, graduate quantum mechanics (412-1,2) and statistical mechanics (416-0) are useful preparation. The last 1/3 of the lectures will discuss the BCS theory of electron-phonon mediated superconductivity and the electromagnetic and transport properties of superconductors.
