PHYS 14201 - Materials Science: Semiconductors, Conductors And Superconductors


Semiconductors, conductors and superconductors builds conceptual models of electrical current through different types of materials and background physics in how they work. An atomic model of solids will be used to develop how semiconductors and conductors work. The doping of semiconductors to change properties will be considered. Fundamental ideas of superconductivity will be discussed. Energy level diagrams will be introduced.  Hands-on activities will be used as much as possible.
