Course objectives
The aim of the course is to obtain knowledge on the topic of structure and properties of solids and semiconductors at the college level. Emphasis is placed on the logical construction of the science disciplines and to acquire the knowledge and skills needed for subsequent lessons on the structure and properties of solids with subsequent transformation into physics teaching in elementary school these reasons it is in talks situated larger number of thought experiments and emphasized the relationship discussed substance to practice, nature, home, etc. technical applications. Objectives: Trivia: A comprehensive overview of knowledge about the topic of solids and semiconductors with an emphasis on the relationship of the subject matter to practice, nature, home, etc. technical applications. Skills: Can you identify the principles of natural processes and technical applications. Conducted sufficient approximation based on fundamental physical laws and carry out subsequent calculations simple application examples. Knowing simple experiments and the relation of the subject matter for practical applications. Proving performed by a qualified estimate of value. Attitudes: To learn the values ​​of objectivity and significance of scientific work.
Learning outcomes
After completing the course the student should know and know: Basic laws of the thematic circuit structure and properties of solids and semiconductors. Describe simple thought experiments and the relationship of the subject matter to practical applications. Calculate simple application examples. Can physically interpret the principles of applications based on semiconductors that occur in everyday life.
