CHEMICAL-PHYSICAL FUNDAMENTALS OF MATERIALS TECHNOLOGIES
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The course will give a panorama on the most advanced materials on which research is nowadays mostly focused. The contact with researchers who are directly involved in the different researches will give the students useful elements for the choice of their final thesis argument.
Course contents summary
The course will give basic information on various types of materials which are currently investigated at the Physics Dept. and IMEM-CNR Institute. By means of specialized seminars advanced materials like: quantum dots structured semiconductors, nanostructured magnetic materials (mutilayers etc.), manganites, superconducting materials also at high pressure, molecular materials, carbon based materials as fullerenes, graphite, graphene and nanotubes will be presented. Also the synthesis and first characterization of these metarils will be tackled.
