Solid State Chemistry, 15 credits

About the education

The course discusses the relationship between structure and properties of solid crystalline materials. The focus is on important inorganic materials groups as metals, metal oxides and silicates, and major crystal structures such as perovskite, spinel and NaCl. Further discussion of various parameters such as symmetry, bond length and electronic structure correlates with the physical and structural characteristics. The physical properties discussed include magnetic, electrical, optical, dielectric, and ion-conducting properties. The course also deals with some important experimental techniques for characterization of the material's crystal structure and physical properties such as powder diffraction, thermal analysis techniques, SEM / EDS, a few spectroscopic methods and techniques for measuring electrical transport properties and magnetic properties.

Area of interest: Science and Mathematics

Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth.

Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media.

As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
