Major target of this course is to familiarize the students with magnetic (paramagnetism, ferromagnetism, ferrimagnetism, antiferromagnetism) and optical (Absorption and Scattering of electromagnetic radiation of solids, Non-linear interaction effects, non-elastic Raman and Brillouin scattering) interactions met in solid state. This course is divided in two sections:

Section Α: Magnetism and Superconductivity: Introduction to Magnetism, Magnetic Environment-Interactions, Magnetic Ordering and magnetic structures, Introduction to Superconductivity, Phenomenology of Superconductivity, London equations, Basic principles of microscopic theory (BCS).
Section B: Optical Properties: Phonon Interactions, Phonon-Electron Interactions, Optical properties, Crystal defects, Techniques of materials characterization.
