Description

MAT_SCI  459: Charge Transport in Electric Materials: Models and Methods

Overview of class
Key models of electron and ion vacancy transport in hard and soft, crystalline and non-crystalline materials, including hopping, tunneling, polaronic transport and mixed conduction. Characterization methods including multi-point resistivity, impedance and noise spectroscopy, photoexcitation-based methods. Group-based learning from assigned papers in primary literature, supplemental lecture/discussion based on student-constructed concept maps, independent project proposing extension to frontier material.
