(3-0) A study of quantum mechanics including combination of two or more quantum mechanical systems, addition of angular momentum, time independent perturbation theory, and time dependent perturbation theory.

Levels: Doctoral Level- Research/Sch, Graduate Post Baccalaureate, Graduate/Masters

Syllabus


PHYS 5324/MSEC 7310

Thin Film Materials Lab

(0-9) An intensive laboratory introduction to the physics and materials fabrication and characterization. At the discretion of the instructor, laboratory projects introducing techniques such as sputtering, furnace/oven preparation, scanning probe microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy, four point probe transport methods, magnetometry and x-ray analysis may be offered. This course is preparatory for students seeking to apply for an experimental materials physics master’s thesis project. This course may be repeated with permission from the instructor/(3-0) This course is an in-depth treatment of physical phenomena in nanoscale structures, and consequences for electronic, photonic, mechanical and other types of devices. The course provides a strong background in devices with applications in nanoelectronics, biomedical systems, micro- and nanoscale manipulation, adaptive optics, and microfluidics.
