Aims
At the end of the course

1 The student can explain the meaning of the following concepts used in the description of material properties and the related physics phenomena (knowledge):
1)          Mechanical properties – mechanical failure; ductile/brittle deformation; intra/intergranular; resilience/toughness; Griffith crack model; stress concentration factor; crack propagation; DBTT; fatigue limit; creep; strain rate; time to rupture; Weibull model
2)          Thermal properties –  heat capacity, thermal expansion, contributions to thermal conductivity – relation with material class; 1D thermal diffusion equation; phonons as carrier of heat; phonon dispersion diagram – optical, acoustic branches, phonon velocity; thermoelectricity (Seebeck, Peltier effect)
3)          Dielectric properties -  capacitor; permittivity; susceptibility; dielectric displacement; polarization/polarizability; Clausius-Mossotti equation; electronic/ionic/orientational/ space charge polarization; Lorentz-Lorenz relation; (relation between) piezo/pyro/ferro/antiferroelectricity; potential energy of ferroelectric; ferroelectric hysteresis loop/ saturation/remanent polarization/coercive field
4)          Electronic properties – macroscopic electronic properties: Ohm’s law; contributions to and temperature dependence of conductivity/resistivity; free electron gas model and its band-diagram; density of states; Fermi energy, Fermi surface; Fermi-Dirac distribution function and role in band-diagram;  relation between atomic orbitals and orbital overlap and different bands in electron energy diagram; conduction/valence bands in band-diagram and electron/hole conduction cause of bandgap; direct/indirect bandgap; relation band-diagram with metallic, semiconducting, insulating character of materials; effect of applied electric field on band occupation; intrinsic/extrinsic semiconductor; carrier concentration and relation with conductivity; functioning of p-n junction, LED in terms of band-diagram; DOS of lower dimensional nanostructures;
5) Electro-chemistry: redox reactions, galvanic cells, batteries, corrosion, electrolysis, electrocatalysis, Pourbaix-diagrams
2 can explain the (non) presence and strength of a specific material property in relation to the atomic and/or larger scale crystal structure (grain size) – (comprehension).
3 knows the meaning of symbols used in formulas that describe material properties – (knowledge)
4 can apply formulas that relate parameters that describe material properties to parameters that describe the material structure to calculate/estimate values or to explain material parameters from microscopic properties (such as types of atoms, crystal lattice)  - (application)
5 can interpret measurement results/graphs and extract values of parameters from these graphs – (application)
6 can apply the concepts to analyse and explain new measurement data or situations – (analysis)
7 can evaluate of the validity of the analysis: can give an appreciation of the limitations of the models learned in relation to a new situation – (evaluation)
8 can apply concepts to construct an explanation/model description of observations on material properties in relation to structural properties
Content
The course Advanced Materials Science & Project deals with the relation between material properties and how these relate to the atoms and atomic structure/composition of the material. 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.
The course consists of a series of two combined lectures after each other (colstructions). The first is a lecture on the structure and functional properties of several material classes (polymer, ceramic and metal). In the second part the students make exercises related to the topic of the lecture under supervision of the lecturer. Each set of combined lectures deals with a different physical phenomenon, which can be material properties such as electrical conductivity or magnetism or physical processes such as diffusion.
