We will also cover various applications of the basics topics, which
may include: alpha decay, atomic energy levels, molecular oscillations,
lasers, conductors, semiconductors, quantum computer, heat capacity, antenna,
NMR/MRI, etc. Please let me know soon if you have specific topics
you want to learn more about - from this list
Tentative exam schedule:
to be graded should be turned in to me in person, or to my mailbox, by
pm on the due date. You may hand in homework up until the beginning
