Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.
Course focuses on understanding the role of chemistry and crystal structure in determining dielectric, electronic and magnetic properties of complex oxides. Topics potentially include: Crystal structure & applied group theory; Transition metal ions in crystals; Laymen's guide to 2nd quantization; Models of the electronic structure & Mott insulators; magnetic exchange interactions & Goodenough-Kanamori-Anderson rules; Cooperative Jahn-Teller. Roughly first 3/4 of semester will be traditional lectures, while last 1/4 will be student-lead lectures on recent literature. The goal of the former is to prepare students for the latter.
When Offered Spring (not offered every year).
