The course will begin with a review on classical materials and then focus on
- Introduction to modern classes of functional materials and their properties: materials for energy, advanced displays, and biomedical devices
- Nanoscale Materials: quantum dots, graphene and nanocomposites.
Materials designs, interactions and processes will be discussed in the context of specific applications.
There will be project activity based on special topics and/or case studies on recent advancements in functional materials.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
- Define the various classes of functional materials and their properties
- Identify processing methods for specific materials/ compositions
- Practice material selections for specific technological needs
- Definition of functional materials, properties and their applications
- Demonstration of material design criteria for specific applications
- Assessment of materials properties and their suitability in specific applications
- Analysis of material integration issues
