APSC 623 - Materials Science of Surfaces and Interfaces

Spring (3) Prerequisite(s): consent of instructor.

Fundamental and applied aspects of metal, inorganic, polymer and other organic surfaces. Solid/solid, solid/liquid and solid/vapor interfaces. Their structure and defects, thermodynamics, reactivity, electronic and mechanical properties. Applications depend on class interests, but have previously included microelectronics, soils, catalysis, colloids, composites, environment sensitive mechanical behavior, UHV single crystal studies, materials durability, batteries and fuel cells, vacuum science and technology, and surface bioactivity.
