One of the best courses I had in college was a solid-state physics class, and the reason it was so deep in terms of content was that the instructor structured his class around a model where the students were required to take charge of their learning if they wanted to survive his lectures.
physics The science of matter and energy and of interactions between the two, grouped in traditional fields such as acoustics, optics, mechanics, thermodynamics and electromagnetism, as well as in modern fields including atomic and nuclear physics, solid-state physics, particle physics and plasma physics.
Finding ways to control matter at the level of single atoms and electrons fascinates many scientists and engineers because the ability to manipulate single charges and single magnetic moments (spins) may help researchers penetrate deep into the mysteries of quantum mechanics and modern solid-state physics. It may also allow development of new, highly sensitive magnetometers with nanometer resolution, single-spin transistors for coherent spintronics, and solid-state devices for quantum information processing.Recently, a collaboration of experimentalists from the Kavli Institute of Nanosciences at Delft University of Technology and theorists at the U.S.
The text assumes knowledge of solid-state physics, electromagnetism, and quantum theory; it is aimed at undergraduates, masters students, and physicists.
