PHYS 261 - Modern Physics With Applications


3 Credit(s)

This course begins with an introduction to quantum physics, including the quantum theory of light, matter waves and the study of solutions to the Schrödinger equation for free electrons, the “particle in the box,” tunneling phenomena and atomic hydrogen. This is followed by a study of statistical physics and solids accompanied by a wide variety of applications. Applications include solid state electronic devices such as the diode, transistor, JFET, MOSFET, diode laser, solar cells, photodetectors, and CCDs.
