3.23 Electrical, Optical, and Magnetic Properties of Materials (MIT) 3.23 Electrical, Optical, and Magnetic Properties of Materials (MIT)

Description

This class discusses the origin of electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials, with a focus on the acquisition of quantum mechanical tools. It begins with an analysis of the properties of materials, presentation of the postulates of quantum mechanics, and close examination of the hydrogen atom, simple molecules and bonds, and the behavior of electrons in solids and energy bands. Introducing the variation principle as a method for the calculation of wavefunctions, the course continues with investigation of how and why materials respond to different electrical, magnetic and electromagnetic fields and probes and study of the conductivity, dielectric function, and magnetic permeability in metals, semiconductors, and insulators. A survey of common devices such as transistors, magn This class discusses the origin of electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials, with a focus on the acquisition of quantum mechanical tools.

MAS.S63 Engineering Health: Towards the Tricorder (MIT) MAS.S63 Engineering Health: Towards the Tricorder (MIT)

Description

Students will learn to fabricate, remix, and design detection and monitoring devices for health following the core focus of the Tricorder: a portable, handheld diagnostic device which can brings health solutions to consumers at home or in remote parts of the world. Inspired by the Tricorder X-Prize (with a purse of $10 million), students will aim to create specific component technologies that integrate into a comprehensive Tricorder mechanism capable of reading vital signs and specific disease biomarker detection. Component areas will include optical, electric, biochemical, and molecular diagnostics.

16.982 Bio-Inspired Structures (MIT) 16.982 Bio-Inspired Structures (MIT)

Description

This course is offered for graduate students who are interested in the interdisciplinary study of bio-inspired structures. The intent is to introduce students to newly inspired modern advanced structures and their applications. It aims to link traditional advanced composites to bio-inspired structures and to discuss their generic properties. A link between materials design, strength and structural behavior at different levels (material, element, structural and system levels) is made. For each level, various concepts will be introduced. The importance of structural, dynamic, thermodynamic and kinetic theories related to such processing is highlighted. The pedagogy is based on active learning and a balance of guest lectures and hands-on activities.

Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Condensed matter

Description

In this session we’ll look at certain macroscopic properties of solids that result from the quantum mechanical behaviour of electrons. This field of physics initially concerned just the behaviour of solids so was referred to as solid state physics. It has been called condensed matter physics since the late 1960s, when it was realised that the type of collective behaviour extended beyond that of electrons in solids to many other systems such as, for example, superfluids.
