Course Objective Lattice dynamics investigate motions of atoms in crystal. Heat capacity, thermal conduction and thermal expansion are related to phonons. Moreover lattice dynamics is very important for electron-phonon interaction and superconductivity. Therefore the aim of this lecture is to instruct master and phD students about phonon structure of solids and to help them in research.
Course Content Lattice Energy, Lattice dynamics of basic systems with harmonic approximation, Lattice dynamics of crystals with two atoms, Rigid-ion model, Shell model, Adiabatic bond charge model, Lattice dynamics with linear-response theory, Neutron scattering and Raman spectroscopy.
