PHYS185 PO - Introduction to Materials Science

When Offered: Last offered spring 2019.
Instructor(s): D. Tanenbaum
Credit: 1

This seminar will showcase current interdisciplinary research methods of modeling and characterizing materials and devices. Materials studied may include polymers, amorphous, polycrystalline and crystalline solids. Thermal, electronic and optical properties will be studied not only in theory, but also in laboratory demonstrations. Topics will include charge transport, band structure, semiconductors, superconductivity, quantum confinement, and spins. Applications of these topics to modern electronics, energy generation, and sensors will be discussed. Experimental methods that will be discussed and demonstrated may include diffraction, electron and scanned probe microscopies, x-ray scattering, optical and mass spectroscopies.
