MSEN 5270 - Materials Characterization for Engineering Course uri icon



  • Rigorous materials characterization is at the heart of understanding property-structure-processing relationships of materials, including soft matter. The goal of the course is to prepare graduate students to understand the basic principles behind material characterization tools and techniques. This class will offer students (1) an introduction to the principles and practice of diffraction, (2) introductory exposure to common characterization methods for the determination of structure, composition, and defects in inorganic and organic solids.
