This class will study some of the changing ideas within modern physics, ranging from relativity theory and quantum mechanics to solid-state physics, nuclear and elementary particles, and cosmology. These ideas will be situated within shifting institutional, cultural, and political contexts. The overall aim is to understand the changing roles of physics and of physicists over the course of the twentieth century. (less)

This upper-division textbook on solid state physics describes how the excitations and imperfections of actual solids can be understood with simple models. Recent advances in the field have been added including high temperature superconductors, quasicrystals, nanostructures, superlattices, Bloch/Wannier levels, Zener tunneling, light-emitting diodes and new magnetic materials.

Low-Cost Capacitance Profiling of a Semiconductor

A low-cost capacitance-based experiment to measure the doping density of a silicon sample is described. Our sample is a commercially produced Schottky diode. The phasesensitive detection required to measure the sample’s capacitance is carried out using an inexpensive data acquisition (DAQ) device and a software program that implements the lock-in detection algorithm. We show experimental set-ups appropriate for two low-cost DAQ devices, where each set-up takes into account the limitations of each DAQ device (the USB-6009 device with restricted analog input and inadequate waveform generation capabilities; the myDAQ device with no hardware triggering). Excellent results for the sample’s doping density and built-in potential are obtained from each set-up. Presented at the 2013 AAPT Summer Meeting, W36: Advanced Labs Workshop (less)

The Fermi-Dirac distribution, also called the "Fermi function," is a fundamental equation expressing the behavior of mobile charges in solid materials. This module explains the Fermi function and the Fermi energy level, and shows how they relate to the density of mobile carriers in solid-state semiconducting materials. (less)

In the electrical engineering, solid-state materials and the properties play an essential role. A thorough understanding of the physics of metals, insulators and semiconductor materials is essential for designing new electronic devices and circuits. After short introduction of the IC fabrication process, the course starts with the crystallography. This will be followed by the basic principle of the quantum mechanics, the sold-state physics, band-structure and the relation with electrical properties of the solid-state materials. When the material physics has been throughly understood, the physics of the semiconductor device follows quite naturally and can be understood quickly and efficiently. Study Goals: The student can 1) determine the crystal structure, the density of atoms and the Miller indices of a crystal, 2) apply Schrodinger's wave equation to various potential functions and derive a probability of finding electrons, 3) discuss the concept of energy band formation and difference of material properties in terms of the band, 4) derive the concentrations of electron and holes with a given temperature in terms of Fermi energy, and 5) can discuss drift, diffusion and scattering of carriers in a semiconductor under various temperature and impurity concentrations.
