  • Atoms, Molecules and Optics

    The physics of atoms and molecules, which constitutes the subject matter of this course rests on a long history of discoveries, both experimental and theoretical. Far from giving a complete account of the historical development, this introductory course aims to give an understanding of both theoretical foundations and key steps, which have occurred in this field. As a direct application of quantum mechanics it includes materials on basic atomic and molecular physics with discussion on (...)

  • Particles, Nuclei and Universe

    This major course proposes to learn the basics features about the elementary particles, the fundamental interactions of nature, nuclear structure, nucleosynthesis, stellar evolution and cosmology.
    Syllabus : " Particles, Nuclei and Universe "
    - Lectures 40 hours, Tutorials 30 hours (1st Semester) -

    Chapter 1: Particles and symmetries (GM) Klein-Gordon equation & Time-dependent perturbation theory Application to processes with scalar (...)

  • Solid State Physics

    The aim of this course is to provide an introduction and a comprehensive view on modern solid state physics at an undergraduate level from the widespread basics to emergent fields of research which can be tackled at an elementary level (e.g. graphene). It emphasizes the fundamental aspects underlying quantum macroscopic phenomena in solids, which are present in most common materials of our daily life, metals, semiconductors, magnets. Each chapter will be illustrated by on-going research (...)

  • Statistical and Quantum Field Theory

    The Statistical Physics program provides an overview of the theory of phase transition, be they continuous or discontinuous. Mean-field approaches of the Landau family will be introduced, together with renormalization group techniques. The aim of the second part of the course on Quantum Physics is to introduce the Quantum Field Theory for scalar fields - only coupled via a simple self-interaction - up to the calculation of basic reaction probability amplitudes.
