Kursens huvudsakliga innehåll

An introduction to bulk nanostructured materials and nanocomposites will be presented. This course aims at teaching the students underlying principles of analytical techniques that are commonly used for the evaluation of bulk properties of materials. These include surface analysis technique FTIR spectroscopy; optical properties evaluation by UV-Vis spectroscopy; crystallographic phase identification by XRD; thermal properties evaluation using TGA and DSC; microstructure investigation by Electron microscopy (SEM and HRTEM); surface area analysis by BET surface area analyzer; electrical property measurement using four-probe technique; magnetic properties by VSM and mechanical properties using indenters.
