Ceramics

The most important goal of the course is to make the link between the microstructure of ceramics and their properties (structural and functional). Further more characterization methods will be used in practice.

The course starts with the synthesis routes for ceramics.

The most common crystallographic structures are discussed.

Some properties of inorganic materials are discussed in combination with their microstructure.

This course aims at linking chemistry to material science.
