Registration using OSIRISYes
The student can:

a. regarding the properties of materials: determine the material class by a global description of its properties (electrical, magnetic) , and provide for a specific, technological material: 
  1. a description of all primary mechanical and functional properties (magnetic, electrical, optical, etc.). 
  2. an explanation of the properties on the structure, taking care of the fact that different phenomena at different length scales play a role.
b. apply, for a particular practical situation of a functional material in an actual device, the separation between function, properties and fabrication requirements.
The course Advanced Materials deals with the relationships between material properties and microstructure/composition. The course provides knowledge and insight into the functional properties of various material classes; and it provides understanding of the relations between microstructure and properties of materials. Topics to be discussed are magnetic materials, dielectric and optical materials, mechanical properties, electrical properties, and thermal properties.
The course consists of lectures on the structure and functional properties of several material classes (polymer, ceramic and metal). In the lectures theory as well as practical cases are discussed. Furthermore, groups of 3 students will study a specific, technologically relevant material system, which will be presented to the other students.
