Metals simple close packed structures, that are conventionally used to prepare powders at micrometer scale. Chemical Crystallography, External features of crystal, Crystal symmetry, Miller Indices, Point groups, Crystallographic terms. Laws of crystallography, Indexing of planes, X- ray diffraction Classification of crystals on the basis of crystal forces Bonding in solids: metals, insulators, conductors and semi conductors n- type and p-type semiconductors Basic simple structures such as salts (CsCl,NaCl, CaF2), oxides (Na2O) and sulphides (ZnS) and more complex structures: carbon-based structures (graphite and diamond) and oxides (rutile, perovskite, layered perovskite, spinel). The second part focussed on X-Ray diffraction techniques. First the basics of X-Ray diffraction is presented then the acquired knowledge is applied on the study of crystalline structures using X-Ray diffraction patterns obtained on powders. 3/ The last part deals with the description of Super conductors, Band theory of metallic state. Conductors semiconductors and insulators. Theories of superconductivity, Fermi level

Course Synopsis

The course synopsis is to describe and characterize the crystalline structure of bulk materials and to know the main techniques used for their elaboration, to overview the different conventional and emergent chemical methods applied to elaborate nanomaterials using bottom-up (and top-down) approaches and finally to comprehend the relations between structure and properties

Course Learning Outcomes

At the completion of course, students will be able to; Describe and study the crystalline structure of materials Select and optimize a protocol to elaborate solid materials according to given specifications. Comprehend the relations between structure and properties
