510.311 - Structure of Materials (Fall 2013) - This course seeks to develop an understanding of the structure of materials starting at the atomic scale and building up to macroscopic structures. Topics include bonding, crystal structures, crystalline defects, symmetry and crystallography, microstructure, liquids and amorphous solids, diffraction, molecular solids and polymers, liquid crystals, amphiphilic materials, and colloids.
- 510.624 - X-Ray Scattering, Diffraction & Imaging (Fall 2013) - An introduction to the uses of x-rays for structural characterization of materials. Topics include: X-ray scattering by atoms; kinematic and dynamical theories of diffraction; Fourier series and transform methods; scattering by liquids and amorphous solids; coherent x-ray diffraction, scattering, and imaging; and modern x-ray sources (synchrotron radiation and x-ray free-electron lasers).
