PS 226

PS 226 Materials Characterization (3 units)

This is a survey of destructive and non-destructive materials characterization techniques. The techniques are classified as to whether they test the physical, chemical or electronic properties of materials. Special attention will be devoted to techniques for semiconductors.

Prerequisite: PS 222, PS 223
