Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
MS1 covers the physical and chemical basics necessary to understand the structure of materials and their properties such as tensile strength, corrosion resistance, hardness, ductility, brittleness and anisotropy. Based on fundamental interactions in solids the structural features and the structure determination by phyicochemical methods will be explained. Major aspects of selected substance classes will be discussed with the focus on the technical relevance in Materials Science and its Structure-Property relations.
Topics of the lecture:
Introduction: Binding forces in solids
1. Atomic structure of solids (crystal structures, reciprocal lattice, diffraction and spectroscopic techniques)
2. Classes of materials (metals/alloys, compound semiconductors, ceramics, oxides, zeolites, polymers,nanomaterials)
3. Atomic-scale physical Properties of materials(mechanical, thermal, electrical, magneticand optical properties)
