Magnetic Materials : Introduction of magnetism : magnetic materials (paramagnetic, ferromagnetic) and spintronics. By using the magnetic material properties, the basics of permanent magnets, field sensors and magnetic recording are presented.
Dielectric Materials : Introduction to the family of dielectric oxides : Dielectrics, piezoelectricity, pyroelectricity, ferroelectricity, antiferroelectricity, magnetoelectricity, multiferroicity, relaxor ferroelectricity.
Superconductors: History, Experimental results, Theoretical aspects, BCStheory, Josephson effects, High temperature Superconductors. The aim of this part of the lecture is to get a basic knowledge of extraordinary properties of superconductors, in view of their possible applications and their fundamental physical properties.
Teaching methods : 24h Theoretical classes (T) Language : Classes and assessment in English, Bibliography In English.
