Vm 565: Structural, Physical and Chemical Characterization of Materials

General information

Course description: Study of the basic structural, physical and chemical characterization techniques that are commonly used in materials science and engineering. X-ray diffraction, a wide range of spectroscopies, microscopies, and scanning probe methods will be covered. Lectures will be integrated with laboratory where the techniques will be demonstrated and/or used by the student to study a material. Techniques will be presented in terms of the underlying physics and chemistry.
Credit hours: 3 credits
