Introduction to Quantum Transport
Start Date:September 28, 2020
Learning Objective:This course is part of a Purdue initiative that aims to complement the expertise that students develop with the breadth at the edges needed to work effectively in today's multidisciplinary environment. These serious short courses require few prerequisites and provide a general framework that can be filled in with self-study when needed.
This is a one credit hour course, not three credit hours. Class duration: July 6, 2020- Aug 7, 2020
This course introduces the Schrodinger equation, uses the tight-binding method to discuss the concept of bandstructure and E(k) relations, along with simple quantum transport problems. No prior background in quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed.
