Electrical, dielectric, magnetic, elastic, and thermal property of solids will be described in terms of basic physical laws. A special attention will be given to new phenomena and materials.

2025 - Thin Film Physics, 5 credits

Aim

The aim of the course is to learn physical mechanisms for the synthesis and microstructure evolution of thin films from the vapour phase. Atomic processes and thermodynamics of ion-surface interactions will be given special attention as they give rise to unusual macroscopic properties relevant for many high-tech applications.

2025 - Experimental Methods I, 5 credits

Aim

The course aims to develop the students' knowledge of experiments as a scientific method and to give the students an introduction to experimental methods in applied physics. Students gain a broad insight into the techniques used in applied physics to understand and be able to describe atoms, molecules and solid materials.

2025 Agent-based Modeling and Simulation as a Research Method, 5 credits

Aim

The aim of the course is that the student will develop advanced knowledge on the uses, advantages, and limitations of agent-based modeling and simulation as a research method. The course enables the student to evaluate the feasibility and opportunities of this research paradigm as well as to gain skills and knowledge for applying agent-based modeling and simulation to their own research. This includes an in-depth understanding of relevant methods, approaches, and tools for developing agent-based models and simulations as well as the critical assessment of the models and simulation results published by others.
