E E 521
Covers the basic theory of quantum mechanics in the context of modern examples of technological importance involving 1D, 2D, and 3D nanomaterials. Develops a qualitative and quantitative understanding of the principles of quantization, band structure, density of states, and Fermi's golden rule (optical absorption, electron-impurity/phonon scattering). Prerequisite: MATH 307 or AMATH 351.
