Materials characterization techniques are used in quality and assurance programs, i.e., processes of verification, quality management and contamination reduction. They are integral parts of the material production and processes for development of novel materials. Therefore characterization techniques and production/development processes are equally important.
This course aims at the foundation of knowledge in modern methodologies of materials characterization and their applications to engineering and scientific problems appearing at production and development of materials, nanomaterials, solid state devices and nanodevices. This knowledge guides the students to select suitable analysis techniques to identify the problems in above processes, to recognize the product quality and/or feedback the analysis data to the material processing.
