Solid state physics is concerned with the properties, often astonishing and often of great utility, which includes the energy band of electrons and the elementary excitation of solid that result from the distribution of electrons in metals, semiconductors, and insulators. This course introduces how the excitations and imperfections of real solids can be understood with simple models whose power and scope are now firmly established. The aim of this course is to give students an extended knowledge of the principles and ways to understand solid state physics. Topics covered include the structure, thermal and electrical properties of metals, semiconductors, and insulators. The subject matter supports a profitable interplay of experiment, application, and theory.
