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
Band theory of metallic state. Conductors semiconductors and insulators.
Theories of superconductivity, Fermi level
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
