MICRO-390 / 4 credits

Teacher: Roke Sylvie

Language: English


Summary

This course provides an overview of relevant interactions in liquids, combining thermodynamics, statistical physics and pair potetnials. Water and aqueos systm,es will be considered in detail. Optical techniques to investigate liquid and liquid interfacial structure will treated.

Content

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

THis course uses concepts from the following courses:

Analysis I-IV; Lin Algebra; Gen. Physics; Electrical Engineering; Adv. Gen. Chemistry

and also from:Biology for engineers; Surfaces and Interfaces; Theory of materials; Functional properties of materials

This course is normally scheduled to run in tandem with Soft Matter. Exceptionally in 2021 this will not be the case and therefore the material about interactions will be slightly longer at the cost of the later part of the course (optical methods).

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Contextualise analytical interactions in a liquid
  • Predict liquid / interfacial properties
  • Theorize about appropriate methods
  • Quantify interactions
  • Interpret spectroscopic data
  • Compare interactions and properties
