The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
a. Contribution of the teaching unit to the learning outcomes of the programme
AA1 : 1.1, 1.4, 1.6
AA2 : 2.4
AA3 : 3.2, 3.5
AA6 : 6.3, 6.4.
b. Specific learning outcomes of the teaching unit
At the end of this teaching unit, the student will be able:
- Crystalline structure. Reciprocal network. Crystalline bond and elastic constants.
- Phonons: network vibrations and thermal properties.
- Fermi's gas of free electrons, quasi-free electrons, energy bands.
- Semi-conductor crystals: basic properties and devices (diode and transistor).
- Superconductivity: experimental facts and theoretical approaches.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Lectures with short hands-on learning activities (e.g.: supervised questions, citing applications, '). Exercises on Moodle.
Individual exercise sessions which are supervised ' Practical experiments.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.As long as the number of students enrolled allows it, the evaluation will take the form of oral exams comprising questions with immediate preparation, and a discussion without preparation which may cover the entire course.
The possible laboratory report might contribute up to 10% in the evaluation.
