3.24 Structure of Materials
Studies the underlying structure of materials in order to deepen understanding of structure-property relationships. For crystalline materials, fundamentals of structural description includes lattices, point and space groups, symmetry and tensor properties. Concepts of structure will then be discussed for other types of material: soft matter, amorphous solids, liquid crystals, two-dimensional materials and nanostructured materials. Includes structural descriptions of interfaces and defects. Also introduces some of the key techniques for structure determination.
