Courses: Topics in Materials Science (CHEMH353G01)
Three lectures for one-half semester (one-half course credit) This course will focus on the structure-property relationship central to the study of materials with specific functions. Structural studies will include bonding, order/disorder, and non-stoichiometry in crystalline and non-crystalline solids. Optical, magnetic and electronic properties will be discussed in the context of non-linear optical materials, ferroelectric and magnetoresistant materials, as well as superconductors and semiconductors.
Prerequisites: Chem 304 or Phys 214 & Chem 101 or Chem 105.
Fulfills: NA II
