05-MCM-1-P5 Materials Science

Representatives: Reinhard X. Fischer, Andreas Lüttge

Content

- Fundamentals in materials science
- Specific, exemplary applications
- Interpretation of phase diagrams
- Crystallization paths
- Melting processes
- Solid solutions
- Phase transformations

Learning Outcome

The students will be able to understand the basic principles in materials science and they will be able to understand and to design syntheses processes.
After finishing the module the students will be able
- to design syntheses routes for materials
- to distinguish between congruent and incongruent melting processes
- to estimate and quantify phase compositions from phase diagrams
- to derive phase diagrams from heating and cooling processes
- to predict phase reactions

Requirements

There are no specific requirements except general knowledge in science basics
