IMAGING AND MATERIALS CHARACTERISATION
Credit points: 15
On completion of this subject, students will be able to determine chemical and structural properties of materials using the techniques of optical microscopy, electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, x-ray fluorescence and image analysis. Materials investigated include earth assemblages,(minerals and soils) and technological materials such as semiconductors and integrated circuits.
