This course provides an overview of different techniques and applications of materials characterization available to scientists and engineers. Lectures will provide a brief introduction to the underlying theory, discuss relevant applications and the limitations of a given technique. Hands-on experience in the lab will allow students to see the methods in action, potentially with their own samples, giving them a well-rounded introduction to the technique. It is open to participants with a basic background in materials science, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, microtechnology or physics, from both industry and academia.
