Currently no class schedule is known.


Aims, contents and method of the course

Binding and structure of metals, band model and conductivity, experimental methods, structure of alloys, phase equilibria and phase diagram, phase transfromations, atomic ordering in alloys, lattice defects, diffusion

Assessment and permitted materials


Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Acquirement of fundamental knowledge on metals and alloys: binding and structure, electronic properties, experimental approaches, lattice defects, phase transformations. In this way, a sound basis for a big part of solid state physics and materials physics is laid.

Examination topics

Oral lecture (blackboard) with additional electronic media (transparencies and ppt presentation) and possibility for interaction with the students (lecture notes).
