KOO090   Solid state chemistry


Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Content

The class room work (problem solving included) deals with
The crystalline state,
Structure types,
The chemical bond in the solid state,
Defects and disorder,
Phase equilibria.
Phase analysis and structure determination with diffraction methods,
The relationships between the structure of solids and their electric, optical, magnetic and mechanical properties.
Examples are mostly taken from oxide materials, silicates, catalysts, high-temperature superconductors, semiconductors magnetic materials and optically active crystals.
Laboratory assignments are chosen to give the student some familiarity with experimental techniques in solid state chemistry: Preparative methods using high temperature and pressure are included together with methods for single-crystal growth from melt and water solution. Powder diffraction methods are used for identification of substances and analysis of multiphase systems. Solving of single-crystal structures will be demonstrated. Prepared materials will be characterized using measurements of dielectric, magnetic, optical and mechanical properties.

Literature

Examination

A written examination with both descriptive questions and numerical problems will be given. Both a passed examination and adequate laboratory work are required for a passed course.
