Annotation:The course provides an introduction to solid state physics and nanostructures, focusing on the understanding of phenomena determining the behaviour of solids. It introduces a periodic crystal structure, diffraction, chemical bonding in solids, and differences to bonding in molecules. Fundamental models of the electronic structure of periodic solids, nanostructures and harmonic vibrations of atoms in crystals are discussed and exploited to explain the nature of well-known properties such as heat and electric conductivity, thermal expansion, hardness, optical absorption, reflection, magnetism or basic devices based on p-n junction or heterostructures. Note: The course or its part can be given in the English language. This can be verified during course registration by Department Administrative Coordinator.
