Chemistry of Inorganic Materials II(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Chemistry
Starts 1 : 3 Spring Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Elective
Lecturer : SAMJESKE Gabor arwed Designated Professor 

•Course Purpose
The purpose of this two semester course consisting of Chemistry of Inorganic Materials I & II is to understand the chemical and physical properties of various inorganic materials, their functions, their analysis and their applications.

At the end of the two-part course, students will have gained knowledge of solid-state chemistry enabling them to understand structures, synthesis and analysis of inorganic solid materials.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Fundamentals of Chemistry I & II, Inorganic Chemistry I & II, Chemistry of Inorganic Materials I

•Course Topics
The course Chemistry of Inorganic Materials I will be structured as follows:

Class 1: Phase diagrams (Part II)
Class 2: Phase diagrams (Part III)
Class 3: Crystallography & diffraction techniques
Class 4: Crystallography & diffraction techniques (Part II)
Class 5: Microscopy, spectroscopy & electron microscopy techniques
Class 6: Microscopy, spectroscopy & electron microscopy (Part II)
Intermediate exam
Class 7: Electrical properties
Class 8: Electrical properties (Part II)
Class 9: Electrical properties (Part III)
Class 10: Magnetic properties
Class 11: Magnetic properties (Part II)
Class 12: Optical properties, luminescence & lasers
Class 13: Optical properties, luminescence & lasers (Part II)
Final exam (comprehensive)

Depending on the situation a shift of topics between classes might happen

•Grade Assessment
Grading will follow the rules for G30 students who have entered NU before AY2020 (5 letter system) or since AY2020 (6 letter system):

maximum TOTAL 100% (= 100 pts)

Homework submission: 10% (= 10 points)
Presentation: 10% (=10 points)
Intermediate exam: 30% (= 30 pts)
Final exam (comprehensive): 50% (= 50 pts)
The presentation and both exams are mandatory

Grades are final and calculated on the basis of the performances during class (homework submission) and in the two exams only. There will be no possibility to improve a grade after the final exam. Students who miss the final exam due to a (documented) illness, injury or other unavoidable reasons can ask the instructor.

Face-to-Face class and remote class (on-demand class) combined.
