CET313 Concept of Experimental Condensed Matter Physics

Course Provider

School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS)



Academic Unit



This course aims to explain the plethora of experimental methods available to contemporary solid-state physicists. Examples will predominantly be drawn from the condensed matter physics, such as phase modulation, nanoscale emergent phenomena and high-temperature superconductivity, etc

This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Precision Instrumentation
- FlexiMasters in Precision Instrumentation

On completion of the course, the learners will acquire a good understanding of the concept of experimental condensed matter physics.

A brief introduction, which encompasses the major experimental condensed matter breakthroughs of the past and highlighting the enduring importance of experimental science. A swift phenomenological review of several important theoretical concepts. These will include classical and quantum phase transitions, superconductivity, marginal Fermi liquids and the Luttinger model, density waves, low-dimensional magnetism, electronic glasses and interfacial reconstructions. 


Participants with physical sciences or engineering background, or working engineer who wish to advance in their careers.
