Ceramics, structures and properties + TP

Students analyze crystal structures, point defects and phase relations in ceramic materials and understand their effect on electrical, thermal and electromechanical properties. Properties of ceramic materials are investigated experimentally and results analyzed and interpreted.

Dielectric properties of materials

Students learn about response of electrically insulating materials to electrical and mechanical fields. The emphasis is on effect of various types of defects on properties, on crystal structure/microstructure - property relations, and on ways how to engineer properties of materials for applications.

Piezoelectric materials, properties and devices

The students acquire knowledge on structure-property relations of piezoelectric and related materials (ferroelectrics, relaxors). Different material classes (ceramics, crystals, composites, polymers) are discussed in view of applications in sensors, actuators, high frequency transducers and others.
