Solid State Physics 1(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 2 the latter term
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory
Lecturer : Hiroshi SAWA Professor 

•Course Purpose
The lectures on solid-state physics are given a series of 4 lectures. This is the first lecture on solid-state physics. The primary aim of this lecture is to study how the crystalline structure on atomic level is determined experimentally by X-ray diffraction. For that purpose, it is necessary to have proper understanding of the new concepts such as reciprocal space, reciprocal lattice, structure factors. These concepts will be explained in detail with some examples.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Atomic Physics,General Physics I,II, General chemistry I
