Physics for Humanists
Physics for Humanists is intended for those who are intellectually and emotionally curious but do not intend to specialize in the natural sciences. The course covers facts and concepts of classical and modern physics; eminent scientists and the emotions that have impelled them; nuclear energy and nuclear bombs; and the interaction, both constructive and destructive, between science and society.

Solar State Physics
In the electrical engineering, solid-state materials and the properties play an essential role. A thorough understanding of the physics of metals, insulators and semiconductor materials is essential for designing new electronic devices and circuits. After short introduction of the IC fabrication process, the course starts with the crystallography. This will be followed by the basic principle of the quantum mechanics, the sold-state physics, band-structure and the relation with electrical propert

General Physics I, Summer 2009
This course is the first of a two-part introductory general physics course intended for non-physics majors. Doing well in this course does not require you to be a “genius”, but you will have to think about the physical concepts in order to understand them and you will have to apply these ideas in order to solve computational problems. To accomplish the former, all you really need is your brain (in good working order) and the willingness to use it. To accomplish the latter, you will need s

6.774 Physics of Microfabrication: Front End Processing (MIT)
This course is offered to graduates and focuses on understanding the fundamental principles of the "front-end" processes used in the fabrication of devices for silicon integrated circuits. This includes advanced physical models and practical aspects of major processes, such as oxidation, diffusion, ion implantation, and epitaxy. Other topics covered include: high performance MOS and bipolar devices including ultra-thin gate oxides, implant-damage enhanced diffusion, advanced metrology, and new m

Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Motion in the Plane
In this section we’ll extend this to motion in more than one dimension, for example the motion of bodies orbiting under gravity. And we’ll also look at how we can treat the motion of an extended body.

Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Current, Electricity
In this session we will be introducing electric currents. We will consider how an electric current behaves in DC and AC circuits, and how these circuits are described with circuit components like resistors, capacitors and inductors.

Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Maxwell’s Equations
In this session we’re going to look at how electricity and magnetism can be unified into a system of equations, named after James Clerk Maxwell, the Scottish physicist who first proposed them. Then we’ll see how this leads to an understanding of the nature of electromagnetic radiation.
