Magnetism (6 lectures) The Nobel Prizes 2009 and 2010 2 PHY380: Some General Points Recommended Textbooks nd Solid State Physics, J R Hook and H Hall, Wiley 2 edition th Introduction to Solid State Physics, C Kittel, Wiley 7 edition The Solid State, H M Rosenberg Oxford 1989 All the contents of the course, to a reasonable level, can be found in Hook and Hall. Kittel has wider coverage, and is somewhat more advanced. Ashcroft and Mermin is a more advanced, rigorous textbook, with rigorous proofs. 3 Relation to Previous Courses This course amalgamates much of the previous PHY330 and the magnetism section of PHY331. Assessment The course will be assessed by an end of semester exam (85%) and two home- works (15%) in the middle and towards the end of the semester respectively (1 November, 13 December deadlines) Prerequisite PHY250, 251, Solids (L R Wilson) Lecture Notes The notes provide an overview of the main points, and all important figures. Many more details will be given during lectures. Students thus need to take detailed notes during lectures to supplement the hand-outs. 4 Overall Aims Electrons in solids: determine electrical and optical properties Crystal lattice: bands, band gaps, electronic properties → metals, semiconductors and insulators Underpin large parts of modern technology: computer chips, light emitting diodes, lasers, magnets, power transmission etc, etc Nanosize structures important modern development The next slides gives some examples: there are many more 5 Electronics, computing Integrated circuit http://www.aztex.biz/tag/integrated -circuits/ 25nm 32nm transistors.
