Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to design a material for a given application, i.e. bearing a set of properties required for the application. This includes the capability (i) to conceive the synthesis of a desired  material, (ii) conceive the processing of a desired material. 

Ultimate learning goal: At the end of this lecture, the students shall be able to design a material for a given application, i.e. bearing a set of properties required for the application. This includes the capability (i) to conceive the synthesis of a desired  material, (ii) conceive the processing of a desired material.

Intermediate learning goals: At the end of the lecture, the students shall

  1. know and understand what a material is 
  2. know the most important materials properties 
  3. understand which molecular and intermolecular features lead to these materials properties = be able to explain structure-property relationships 
  4. be able to identify materials featuring a certain set of properties in the materials space
  5. know the major bulk states (crystalline vs. amorphous) and how to synthesize materials in either of the state as a function of the type of material. Know how to analyze if the desired state has been achieved. 
  6. know and understand how materials can be further fine tuned by (nano-/micro-) structuring. 
  7. know and understand how to combine materials properties (composites, hybrids) at different size scales and complexity levels

Subject of course

Chapter1: Basics of materials (definitions of materials;  materials properties; structure-property relationships) 

Chapter2:  Synthesis of bulk materials (crystalline vs. amorphous solids; synthesis of crystalline solids from solution/melt/gas/solid state; synthesis of amorphous solids from solution/melt/gas/solid state) 

Chapter3: Structuring of materials (nano- and microstructuring; porous materials)

Chapter4: Combination of materials (hybrids, composites)

Examination modalities

Assessment is performed via evaluation of a research paper written as a group. There will be one review round where you will be informed on the status of the paper and you will have the chance to reply to reviewer comments in order to improve the quality of the paper if needed.

The procedure for writing the paper as well as the format and further the details will be explained on 09.12.2021 during the lecture.
