Aims
  • Can use the 3 main classes of materials on different levels (molecular to macroscopic) and relate their mechanical properties to the underlying structure.
  • Can illustrate electrical properties of different materials (metals, insulators, semiconductors) in relation to the underlying structure.
  • Can systematically search, critically assess, and organize information from literature, in particular on material properties applied in a device.
  • Can formulate a scientific research question and explain its relevance to a practical application.
  • Can communicate orally (interview, pitch) and in writing (advice) with experts and with peers.
  • Can reflect on one's progress in the project on the basis of project progress plans.
Content
The 3 main classes of materials are discussed in this part of the module: metals, polymers, and inorganic materials such as ceramics and glass. The structure of these classes of materials are described on various length scales, going from atoms and atomic bonds, via microscopic, to macroscopic objects. The mechanical and electrical properties of materials are described and explained from the underlying structure on different length scales. This block ends with a discussion of metals and semiconductors.
