Solid state physics II

This lecture of two semesters gives an introduction to Solid State Physics, namely to crystal structure, lattice vibrations, electronic and magnetic properties, as well as to the thermal and electric conductance of solids. The level is that of Kittel and Ashcroft & Mermin.

Frontiers in nanosciences

The students understand the relevant experimental and theoretical concepts of the nanoscale science. The course move from basic concepts like quantum size effects to €˜hot fields€™ such as spin transport for data storage applications (spintronics), carbon electronics, or nanocatalysis.
