Aims
The aim is to provide knowledge of fundamental aspects of the structure/composition in relation to the properties and performance of advanced inorganic materials.
Content
This course will address the relationship between the structure/composition and properties of advanced inorganic materials. Advanced materials are novel or modified materials with new or enhanced properties that help cope with the increased demands in technological applications. These are, amongst others, electronic applications (dielectrics and ferroelectrics), optical applications (transparent conducting oxides) and materials for energy production and storage (ionic conductors, mixed electronic/ionic conductors, and optoelectronic materials). The course consists of multiple parts: 1 group theory of crystal symmetry, 2a) Landau theory (e.g., ferroelectrics), 2b) Optoelectronic materials and 3a) defect chemistry (e.g., ionic and electronic transport properties), 3b) Magnetism . Students can choose either 2a or 2b and either 3a) or 3b) depending on the focus of their studies, and all students take part in 1). All of these topics will be discussed using recent scientific articles to enable students to discuss advanced materials discoveries and make materials design choices for various applications.
Assessment
Consists of Partial Exam 1 (33%) Partial Exam 2A or 2B (33%) and Partial exam 3 A or 1B  (33%). Resit is 1 combined exam. Homework and group presentations can make up to 10% of the final grade.
