Description by J. Szczytko, November 2009
To acquaint students with basic concepts in optics, atomic physics and condensed matter physics. The student will be able to further self-education in this area.
After each lecture, the student will receive some simple problems to solve at home. Class ends with written and oral examination. Final rating depends on the sum of points obtained in the homework, the exam and oral exam.
Attendance not mandatory (option R). Option RW (only lecture): 50% attendance required.
1. Ch. Kittel "Introduction to solid state physics"
2. J. Taylor, Ch. Zafiratos, M. Dubson "Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers"
