PHYS 225: Applications of Modern Physics

Instructor and Team Leader: Marie Lopez del Puerto

This sophomore-level course covers modern physics from a materials science perspective, i.e. building from the properties of single atoms to collections of atoms (quantum dots and other nano-scale systems), and then to solids, with applications interwoven throughout. Time in the laboratory is used to reinforce concepts learned in class through the use of simulations and tutorials, while also introducing students to computational modeling using MATLAB. Descriptions of all materials developed for this course can be found in the course’s curriculum development webpage:
