A hands-on introduction to the use of laboratory techniques for processing and characterization in materials science. Structure-property relations will be explored through experiments in mechanical, optical, biological, and electronic properties of materials. The underlying theories and lab techniques will be explained in two weekly lectures covering such topics as electronic and mechanical properties, electron microscopy, electron diffraction and materials processing. The goal of this course if for the student to develop a solid understanding of materials properties and the common techniques used in research, as well as to gain valuable
