Content

Unit FMB702 introduces students to the fundamental concepts and principles of state-of-the-art materials characterisation techniques for structural, mechanical and chemical investigation of materials on the macro, micro and nano scales. Examples of such techniques include electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, atom probe tomography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The discipline specific knowledge and critical thinking skills explored and learned in this unit will aid students in developing research ideas and planning projects to undertake their own cutting edge research in the area of materials science.
