Course Description

Materials have been an integral and important part of electrical and electronic engineering from finding good conductors of electricity that can carry very high current to finding good insulators that can handle very high voltages.

Semiconductors, superconductors, magnetic materials, optical materials have been all making use of different electron behaviors in solids interacting with electrical, optical and magnetic fields. In order to understand and develop such technologies, a deep and thorough understanding of structure and property of materials is necessary.

Therefore, in this course we will study:

  • structures in various sizes (atomic structure, crystal structure, defect structure, electronic structure, microstructure, etc.)
  • different properties of materials (electrical, optical, magnetic, etc.)

and eventually do the correlation between structure and property, that is, understand how structure dictates properties of materials.
