Help on Quantum Statistics Topic

  1. Apr 23, 2010 #1
    I'm a senior undergrad student and I am going to give a 50 minute lecture on Degenerate Fermi Gases to the Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics class. I was wondering if anybody could help me out with coming up with some interesting stories, factoids, thought experiments, history lessons, etc... on the subject of degenerate fermi gases. This topic includes: fermi energy and temperature, degeneracy pressure, bulk modulus, density of states, and the Sommerfeld expansion. More explicitly, if you have Daniel Schroeder's Thermal Physics, I'm covering section 7.3.

    I have a basic outline of what I want to cover, including some problems to work in class, but I would like to spice it up with some quips if possible.
