Entry requirements

130 credits within Science and Technology including Functional materials I and Solid State Physics II.

Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • make qualitative analyses of the electric, dielectric and magnetic properties of materials,
  • understand the relationship between specific material properties and their function in applications using electric, dielectric and/or magnetic materials,
  • describe specific applications using functional metallic, dielectric and/or magnetic materials.

Content

The course describes functional materials such as dielectric, ferroelectric, multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials. Theoretical and experimental methods used to analyse the material properties and their functionalities are discussed, and illustrated by current research results. Specific functionalities are studied in more detail during a project work.

Instruction

Seminars and project supervision.

Assessment

Oral examination (2 credits), written and oral presentation of project work (3 credits).

If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
