Department Name : Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 1 Autumn Semester
Lecturer : Hiroshi SAWA Professor  Naoyuki KATAYAMA Associate Professor 

•Course Purpose
In the lecture on structural Physics, 1. Recognizing the importance of studying the structure of materials, 2. Understanding traditional methods of structural analysis, 3. To deepen the understanding of practical methods of structural study methods such as X-ray diffraction method, 4. We study related books by participants for the purpose of learning recent experiment method or recent analysis method. Select books for each year. We will deepen discussion and understanding by solving exercises etc on our own.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Solid state physics, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics etc.

•Course Topics
The purpose of the present course is to obtain the basic knowledge for studying the structural physics. In the classes, we will perform below,
1. Reading the textbook and discussions. Students read and explain the contents of the textbook in turn, and perform the discussion after that. 2. Soving the questions relating to the textbook. Students are required to acquire the knowledge completely.

In order to enhance the class effect, it is necessary to prepare in advance and review after the class.


•Additional Reading
Introduction to Solid State Physics by C. Kittel, Synchrotron Radiation Crystallography by P.Coppens, X-ray Diffraction by B.E. Warren,

•Grade Assessment
Evaluate the target achievement level by question-and-answer at the time of presentation. Pass score of 60 points or more with 100 full marks.

No course requirements

•Contacting Faculty
Correspond at the time of the seminar.
