ADVANCED NANOMATERIALS CHARACTERISATION

PHY5AMC

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will be introduced to the fundamental theoretical framework, working principles and instrumentation of arrange of materials science techniques used in the morphological, structural and compositional characterisation of materials. The laboratory components of the subject will provide you with intensive instruction and hands-on experience in these techniques, enabling you to use these techniques to address a real-world problem. You will have the opportunity to carry out an in-depth investigation of an individual material characterisation technique with reference to the formal published literature.
