Fundamentals of Materials Science
|Numbering Code||U-ENG25 25133 LJ75||Year/Term||2021 ・ First semester|
|Number of Credits||2||Course Type||Lecture|
|Target Year||Target Student|
|Instructor name||MURASE KUNIAKI (Graduate School of Engineering Professor)|
|Outline and Purpose of the Course||Based primarily on the solid-state chemistry, this course serves the outline of notation (descriptive method) and analytical techniques for solid substances, which become the basis of materials science and materials engineering.|
|Course Goals||Basic knowledges of physics, chemistry, mathematics, etc. are requires to learn materials science and materials engineering. In this course students learn basic technical terms and develop fundamental concepts of solid-state materials chemistry, to take subsequent advanced courses on materials science and materials engineering.|
|Schedule and Contents||
Substances and materials, 1 time, Three states of matter; Amorphous and glasses; Liquid crystal; Materials structures and properties in our surrounding living environment.
Fundamentals of crystal structures, 3 times, Close packing and holes; Crystal structure of metals; Point symmetry and space symmetry; Lattice and unit structure; Crystal system and Bravais lattice; Depiction of lattice plane and lattice direction; Fractional coordinates.
Fundamentals of chemical bond theory, 2 times, Electronic configuration and shielding; Size of atoms and ions; Covalency and ionicity; Definition of electronegativity.
Inorganic solid-state materials, 3 times, Structure of important ionic crystals; Stoichiometry and lattice defects; Ionic conduction and solid electrolytes; Crystal field and optical properties of d-block elements.
Fundamentals of diffraction crystallography, 5 times, Generation and properties of X-ray; Fundamentals of X-ray scattering and diffraction (Bragg condition, structure factor, extinction rule); Powder X-ray diffractometry; Laue method
Self-assessment of achievement, 1 time, Review of the course contents
|Evaluation Methods and Policy||(1) Class participation, (2) take-home assignments (approx. 50% in total), and (3) exams (approx. 50%). Students will sign a roll sheet every class. Ten written take-home assignments are due throughout the semester. Supplementary examination to bail out low-performing students will not be given for any reason.|
|Course Requirements||Knowledge of physics and chemistry for the entrance examination of Kyoto University.|
|Study outside of Class (preparation and review)||The take-home assignments and their suggested answers should effectively be used for preparation and review.|
|Textbooks||Textbooks/References||No textbook is required for this course. A course booklet will be given out at the first lecture.|
