MSE 498 MAS - Special Topics - Modern Methods in Mat'ls Chara
Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in materials science and engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 1 to 4 undergraduate hours. 1 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.
Modern Methods in Materials Characterization: The Materials Research Laboratory (MRL), with world class instrumentation and expertise on materials characterization, will offer a semester-long class covering the fundamentals and applications of some the most important analytical techniques for materials research (x-ray diffraction, scattering and photoelectron spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry and thermo-gravimetry analysis, laser confocal profilometry, light scattering-based particle size analysis, confocal Raman and ellipsometry, transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, cryo-electron microscopy, etc.). The concepts discussed in classroom will be augmented with live virtual experimental lab sessions which include student participation using state-of-the-art instrumentation available at the MRL core facilities.
