10.566 Structure of Soft Matter

Class Info

Provides an introduction to the basic thermodynamic language used for describing the structure of materials, followed by a survey of the scattering, microscopy and spectroscopic techniques for structure and morphology characterization. Applies these concepts to a series of case studies illustrating the diverse structures formed in soft materials and the common length, time and energy scales that unify this field. For students interested in studying polymer science, colloid science, nanotechnology, biomaterials, and liquid crystals. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.

This class has 5.60 as a prerequisite.

10.566 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by B. D. Olsen.

This class counts for a total of 9 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
