This discipline aims at teaching students the basic concepts of solid state technology and its recent applications. The lecture-based courses deal with the subject at the state-of-the art level, and cover a wide spectrum of topics, in order to provide a broad understanding of the different aspects of solid state technology. The topics include synthesis and characterisation of materials, semiconductors, magnetic materials, optical and optoelectronic materials, superconductors, solid state ionics and semi conductor devices. Since this subject is interdisciplinary in nature, students are required to take courses from among related departments. The laboratory courses are formulated so as to provide necessary training in advanced topics of solid state technology.
An important component of the programme is the project work. The aim of the project work is not only to impart training in research methodology and analysis but also to help the student gain an in depth understanding of a problem of relevance to industry.
