1.강의목표 Parallel treatments of photons, electrons, phonons, and molecules as energy carriers, aiming at fundamental understanding and descriptive tools for energy and heat transport processes from nanoscale continuously to macroscale. Topics include the energy levels, the statistical behavior and internal energy, energy transport in the forms of waves and particles, scattering and heat generation processes, Boltzmann equation and derivation of classical laws, deviation from classical laws at nanoscale and their appropriate descriptions, with applications in nano- and microtechnology.

  • Homework will be assigned approximately once in two weeks. Homework should be turned in before the due date. There will be penalty for late submission.
  • There will be one in-class and one take-home midterm exams. No final exam. No make-up exams will be allowed except for legitimate circumstances, e.g., a verified medical emergency.
  • The final project will comprise of a 5-page report on a research topic of your own choice (so long as it is related to the material taught in class.).
  • Policies on academic dishonesty will be strictly enforced.
