MSE 131L Diffusion and Diffusion-Controlled Reaction Laboratory Department of Materials Science and Engineering University of California, Los Angeles Introduction Diffusion and diffusion-controlled reaction play critical roles in applications and processing of engineering materials. In this experiment, students have opportunities to relate what they have leaned in the MSE 131 classroom to practical diffusion and diffusion-controlled reactions, such as grain growth, compounds formation, etc. They will apply their knowledge in diffusion, crystal structure, x-ray diffraction, recrystallization, texture, and quantitative metallographic images to analyze and explain the results from the experiments in this class. Students are also expected to learn some fundamental techniques and skills in typical metallurgical laboratories, such as annealing, mounting samples, grinding, polishing, etching, taking photographs, characterizing microstructures, and writing technical reports. General Laboratory Guideline 1. Safety glasses and gloves must be worn in the laboratory, especially when etching your specimens. It is your responsibility to acquire a pair of safety glasses. Other safety issues will be discussed at the first meeting of the course. 2. The website for the experiments should be read prior to the beginning of the class. You should aim to complete the experiment within the allocated laboratory hours unless equipment problems arise. The laboratory is planned by the scheduled hours. However, you may work on the experiments after the regular hours with permission from the instructor or TA. 3. It is important to have your experimental data signed by the instructor or TA at the end of each class. A copy of original data must be attached to your laboratory reports and unsigned data will not be accepted. 4. Your laboratory space and supplies should be cleaned or left in good condition at the end of each class so that other students can use them after you. Any equipment malfunction or breakage should be reported immediately to the instructor or TA, and do not try to fix them by yourself. Report Format Laboratory reports are due one week after the completion of the experiment. No late reports will be accepted unless a valid excuse is made to the instructor before the due day. The front pages of the reports must include the following information: 1. Course number
