These are fast paced focused courses on the synthesis/formation and properties of low dimensional materials structures. This course sequence is an excellent follow-on to a standard solid state physics class. It is recommended that you already have at least undergraduate Solid State and thermodynamics before taking these courses.
The courses are taught in an open structure, usually with no exams and only HW assignments. They assume a high level of student interest in the topic and rely heavily on student participation in the presentation of ideas.
