Diffraction Crystallography University of Tsukuba
Diffraction technique and theory for studying or developing new materials will be lectured on the bases of solid-state physics. The method of crystal diffraction with quantum beam not only for quantitative structural determination and characterization but also for studying local structure and structural fluctuations/modulations at the microscopic level will be explained.
To understand the crystal structure and microstructure of new materials at the atomic-size level, and to be able to apply this knowledge to research. To be able to understand the unique physical phenomena found in various materials from a structural standpoint, and to be able to apply this understanding to research.
Fundamental engineering ability, Basic academic abilities, Ethical view, Practical insight and problem-solving ability
Mastery of the fundamentals of solid state physics.
Students are expected to attend every class. The total score of the final examination (report) (80%) and the quiz at the end of the class (20%) is 60% or more of the full score to pass the course. The grade of A+ to C will be based on the total score. However, students with poor attendance will not be eligible for credit.
