Course objective
  1. 1. the introduction of students with basic concepts of physics of the condensed phase;
  2. 2. the understanding of features and properties of macroscopic solids based on the internal construction;
  3. 3. the introduction of mathematical frames of the description of the symmetry of crystalline material;
  4. 4. the obtainment of the basic knowledge about practical applications of this domain;
  5. 5. the recognition of the specificity of the experimental work by performing the experimental exercises exemplifying chosen phenomena of physics of condensed phase.
Learning outcomes

  2. After the end of the course the student is able: 2. to show and to justify the relationship of elements and transformations of the symmetry of crystalline material with its physical features and properties both microscopic and macroscopic. FT1A_W07
  3. After the end of the course the student is able: 3. to perform experimental investigations of physical properties. FT1A_U08
  4. After the end of the course the student is able: 4. to work out the obtained experimental data. FT1A_U09
  5. After the end of the course the student is able: 5. to interpret the obtained results within the range of physics of condensed phase. FT1A_U15
Assessment methods
efects 1-2: written test.
efects 3-5: laboratory written reports

The assessment of the laboratory is absed on the tests and written reports. The assessment of the lecture is based on one written test. The assessment of the course is the average of the examination (50%) and of the laboratory (50%).
Prerequisites
Before the accession to the course student should be able to apply the basic rules of classical physics.
