KurzbeschreibungThe course presents structure-property relationships in complex materials, such as ferroic crystals, heterostructures and disordered materials.
LernzielThe aim of the course is to impart detailed knowledge of the structure-property relationships in complex materials, such as ferroic crystals, heterostructures and disordered materials. Students are encouraged to reflect critically on the topics taught in the lecture. They should give critical feedback and in this way structure the progress of the lecture.
InhaltPart 1 focuses on the synthesis and processing of amorphous materials using physical routes. The resulting structure is discussed, as well as their thermodynamics and kinetics. The course focuses in particular on the relationships between the structure of glassy metals and other disordered materials and their resulting mechanical, thermophysical, biomedical and electronic properties. As to processing, new manufacturing routes such as 3D printing of metals are also introduced.

In part 2, single crystals and heterostructures will be investigated for unconventional manifestations of ferroic order, such as (anti-) ferromagnetism, ferroelectricity, ferrotoroidicity and in particular the coexistence of two or more of these. Domains and their interaction are of particular interest. They are visualized by laser-optical and force microscopy techniques. Very often the (multi-)ferroic order is a consequence of the competing interactions between spins, charges, orbitals, and lattices. This interplay is resolved by ultrafast laser spectroscopy with access to the sub-picosecond timescale.
SkriptLecture material is presented in the form of slides and assignments, with the aim that the students develop their own, critical perspective on the subject. This results in a continuous adoption of the lecture content with respect to the feedback given by the students. A script is not provided as it may generate a simple "read, memorize, and reproduce" learning perspective.
LiteraturReferences to original articles and reviews for further reading will be provided.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesKnowledge in the physics of materials, as provided by the ETH Zurich B.S. curriculum in Materials Science. Students are encouraged to provide continuous feedback so that the topics covered by the lecture can be constantly adopted.
