Lecture 1 Go over the description, outlining what topics it is hoped to cover Give some general idea of what each part will be Discuss the references, and mention differences between this year and previous years Survey the class to find out what they know Discuss the question of opting out of the class if the students have had the material before Overview The focus of this class is imperfections in crystalline materials in a broad sense. The class will not cover all possible examples, but instead will try and give a more general coverage. Relatively little will be said about defects in polymers or biomaterials, unfortunately. Instead the major areas will be metals, ceramics and semiconductors and applications will be (briefly) mentioned for as wide a range of properties as possible (and as I remember to mention them). To give a broad-base, not fully accurate sense of context, Physics: Often concerns itself with the average properties of materials, often perfect crystals. Chemistry: Often concerns itself with how to make different materials Materials Science: The relationship between micro and nanoscale structure, processing and properties. As such we are often interested in how defects change/affect the perfect crystal (physics)
