1 Introductory remarks What characterizes the solid state? States of matter Plasma Physics and Chemistry of Solids

2 Anomaly of water: Clausius-Clapeyron For more info click

3 Crystalline SiO 2 Quartz (SiO 2 ) crystal amorph glass Looks like “supercooled Liquid” Silicon atom Oxygen atom Solids Click for details about quartz

4 The problem: > electrons experience Coulomb interaction Help: symmetry regularly repeated arrangement of atoms Quantum MechanicsStatistical Physics approximate Solution Crystalline solid

5 - metals, semiconductors, insulators - lattice dynamics, thermal properties - optical and dielectric properties, magnetic properties - superconductivity Special relativity
