and narrow band semiconductors. Hopping conduction. Non-stoichiometric and valency controlled semi conduction,

metallic conduction. Nernst Einstein equation for diffusion and conductivity in ionic solids. Effect of temperature,

pressure and impurities. Super Conductivity: BCS theory, High Tcsuperconductors, collosol and giant magneto resistance.

Dielectric behaviour: Claussius-Mosotti equation, behaviour of dielectrics in DC and AC electric fields. Linear and

non-linear dielectrics, Ferroelectricity, dielectric behaviour of polycrystalline and polyphase ceramics.
