Lecture Description

We now discuss how, given a structure and a basis, we can predict the spacing, position and magnitude of the intensity. We find that, in practice, we have no idea where atoms sit in a lattice. So we take a guess, use the structure factor to calculate the intensity and compare that to experimental data. We also go through the structure factor and how to use it mathematically.

Course Description

Welcome to Solid State Physics in a Nutshell. This video series was originally designed to go along with the solid state physics course at the Colorado School of Mines. It follows and references the textbook by Kittel, Introduction to Solid State Physics, 8th edition. As these videos are now being updated to be a worldwide resource, they are also captioned to make viewing possible for everyone, near and far.

It spans 32 video lectures, covering the following topics:
1. Bonding and Crystal Structure
2. Elastic Diffraction
3. Elastic Scattering
4. Phonon Dispersions and Transport & Thermal Properties
5. Inelastic Scattering
6. Free Electron Model: Density of States & Heat Capacity
7. Weak Potential and Band Structures
8. Intrinsic Semiconductors
