Study: European Master in Nuclear Fusion Science and Engineering Physic (273)
Coordinating teacher: MARTIN SOLIS, JOSE RAMON
Department assigned to the subject: Department of Physics
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS
Students are expected to have completed
Basic knowledge of general physics
Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
The aim of this course is to develop the basic knowledge on the structure, types and properties of materials. The fundamentals on crystalline and non-crystalline materials will be reviewed and essential topics on degradation ¿including radiation damage- and processing will be treated.
The course will provide the student with a general knowledge of the structure of materials and its influence on their properties.
Description of contents: programme
1. The structure of materials
2. Types of materials
3. Defects in crystals
5. Phase diagrams
6. Properties of materials: mechanical, thermal, electrical, magnetic, optical
