6.730 Physics for Solid-State Applications

Class Info

Classical and quantum models of electrons and lattice vibrations in solids, emphasizing physical models for elastic properties, electronic transport, and heat capacity. Crystal lattices, electronic energy band structures, phonon dispersion relatons, effective mass theorem, semiclassical equations of motion, electron scattering and semiconductor optical properties. Band structure and transport properties of selected semiconductors. Connection of quantum theory of solids with quasi-Fermi levels and Boltzmann transport used in device modeling.

This class has 6.013, and 6.728 as prerequisites.

6.730 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by R. Ram and Q. Hu.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-149.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
