- Course objectives
- This course is to sketch several interesting areas of one of the prominent branches of contemporary physics - condensed matter physics will be presented as a dynamical field of study, benefiting from interpenetrating experiment and theory. The results form the basis of numerous technical achievements; however, they also represent fundamental knowledge on quantum behavior of many-particle systems. The prominent role of the condensed matter physics is also documented by the number of Nobel prizes. In fact, the last two decades brought about a half of them for discoveries in condensed matter physics (1985 - quantum Hall effect, 1987 - high-temperature superconductivity, 1991 - theory of liquid crystals and polymers, 1994 - neutron scattering in condensed matter, 1996 - superfluidity in He-3, 1998 - fractional Hall effect, 2000 - information and communication technologies based on semiconductor integrated circuits, 2001 - experimental realisation of Bose-Einstein condensation, 2003 - theoretical work in the theory of superconductivity and superfluidity, 2007 - giant magnetoresistance)
- Learning outcomes
- After successful passing the course the students should be able to
- list and explain experiments important for last half-century condensed matter physics
- analyse the appropriate fundamental problems in many particles systems from the viewpoint of modern physics
- Fermi gas in terrestrial physics and astrophysics Two-dimensional electron gas Nanostructures Usual and unusual mechanisms of electrical conduction, quantum Hall effect High-temperature superconductivity and superfluidity in He-3 From quartz to integrated circuit Physical principles of modern memory chips Self-organization mechanisms in condensed systems Photonic crystals Bose-Einstein condensation Colossal magnetoresistivity and other novel magnetic phenomena Large experimental facilities
