MSE 602 - Materials Characterization

Develops a broad understanding of the means used to characterize the properties of solids coupled with a fundamental understanding of the underlying mechanisms in the context of material science and engineering. The course is organized according to the type of physical property of interest. The methods used to assess properties are described through integration of the principles of materials science and physics. Methods more amenable to analysis of bulk properties are differentiated from those aimed at measurements of local/surface properties. Breadth is achieved at the expense of depth to provide a foundation for advanced courses. (Y)
