Primary Instructor:

Study of the basic structural and chemical characterization techniques that are commonly used in materials science and engineering, X-ray, electron and neutron diffraction, a wide range of spectroscopies, microscopies, and scanning probe methods will be covered. Lectures will be integrated with a lab where the techniques will be demonstrated and/or used by the students to study a material. Techniques will be presented in terms of the underlying physics and chemistry.

Note: This course will be taught in a team based/project based manner without formal exams or a final. There will be annotated reading assignments due at each class and we will use formative based assessments (like quizzes) at least 6 times during the term. Homework will be not be graded for accuracy but rather for effort and honesty in written reflections. There will be two projects this term that are focussed on characterization techniques.
