Objectives: | The contents of the lecture Physics 2 are the basis for the understanding and the solution of many engineering problems. The students shall be able to understand basic theories of geometrical optics and atomic physics as well as to analyse and to solve problems of wave phenomena. The students know the basic principles of quantum electronics, quantum effects on electronic conductivity, spin phenomena as the basis of future information technology; they know the fundamentals of Nuclear Physics: Properties of atomic nuclei and radioactive decay. Preparation, performing, evaluation and documentation of physical measurements. |

Course contents: | Wave theory: One-dimensional harmonical waves (wave equation, phase velocity, reflection, standing waves). Three-dimensional waves, spherical waves. Energy density and energy transport. Superposition of waves, diffractionand interference. Group velocity. Geometrical optics: Reflection, refraction, dispersion. Optical imaging with mirrors and lenses. Atomic physics: Structure of atoms, simple models of the atom (Bohr, Sommerfeld), structure of the atomic shell, quantum numbers, principles (Pauli principle, minimal energy), periodic system of the elements, radiative transitions. Wave/particle viewpoints. Basic principles of quantum electronics, quantum effects on electronic conductivity, spin phenomena as the basis of future information technology; Fundamentals of Nuclear Physics: Properties of atomic nuclei and radioactive decay. |
