Ceramics, structures and properties + TP

MSE-231

Enseignant(s) :

Langue:

English

Summary

Students analyze crystal structures, point defects and phase relations in ceramic materials and understand their effect on electrical, thermal and electromechanical properties. Properties of ceramic materials are investigated experimentally and results analyzed and interpreted.

Content

1. Crystalline structure of the most important ceramics.

2. Point defects and their relationship to functional properties.

3. Mechanical and thermal properties of ceramics

4. Electronic and ionic conductivity in ceramics, dielectric, piezoelectric, and ferroelectric materials and their applications

5. Experimental characterisation of properties of ceramics and practice with instruments for measurements of electrical and electro-mechanical properties.

6. Analysis and interpretation of experimental results

7. Making use of suitable instruments for electromechanic measurements
