Electronic Properties of Materials[edit source]

This is part of a 15 week graduate course taught by Scott.beckman. Currently Prof. Beckman has 200+ pages of hand written notes and the students will be digitizing these as part of the course, spring 2020.

There are currently 3 sub-sections, each sub-section containing about 10-15 chapters.

The subsections are

  1. Quantum Mechanics for Engineers
  2. Band Theory of Solids
  3. Electronic Properties

At some point in the future, it would be desirable to add a fourth sub-section that focuses on Devices. This will not be possible during spring 2020.
