CerE414/415: Electromagnetic Properties of Ceramics

Course name Electromagnetic Properties of Ceramics
Course number CerE414/CerE415
Cross listings: none
Credit Hours 3/1
Quarter Offered Winter
Frequency Every year
Prerequisites Required: none
Recommended: EE215
Course Description This course covers a broad scope of the electrical properties of ceramics: ionic conductivity, dielectricity, piezoelectricity, ferroelectricity, magnetism, and superconductivity. These properties are based on distinct fundamentals: defect chemistry (ionic conductor), forced polarization (dielectrics), spontaneous polarization (ferroelectrics), and electron spin (magnetism).
Laboratory Cer E 415 consists of labs covering ionic conduction, ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, and magnetics.
Keywords ionic conduction, dielectrics, ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, pyroelectrics, magnetics.
