MDI 336LEC Kinetics, Defects, and Transport


This course is a foundational course in introducing students to kinetic phenomena in materials. Topics include atomistic perspective of diffusion and exploring links between diffusion controlled properties and materials chemistry. Lectures cover all genres of materials including metals, non-metals, glasses and polymers. The fundamental concepts are linked to a variety of processes including phase transformation and microstructural evolution. A key pervading theme throughout the course is the statistical perspective of defect behavior and their influence on kinetic phenomena and students are introduced to the application of informatics methods in the analysis of kinetic phenomena.
