Code:206
Course Type:Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 3 the previous term
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory
Lecturer : Taishi TAKENOBU Professor  Masashi HASEGAWA Professor 

•Course Purpose
Lectures on basic solid state physics are given. In particular, the main topics include the thermal properties of solids based on the lattice dynamics and dielectric properties of solids. Introduction of Einstein model of Heat capacity to show quantum properties of matter and lattice vibrations. Dispersion relation of one-dimensional chain and extension to diatomic lattice, Debye model of heat capacity based on lattice vibrations. In the second half, properties of dielectric materials, such as dielectric constant, are given.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Mechanics I,II and exercise, Thermodynamics, Electricity and Magnetism A,B, Atomic Physics, Solid State Physics 1, Oscillations and Waves
