Course Description

This course presents the fundamentals of materials elaboration. A first part presents the basics of monocristalline synthesis, starting from reflexion based on phase diagrams, nucleation-growth concepts and illustrations with various hot-temperature monocristalline routes. Such routes are predominant in the optic and photovoltaic domains. A second part deals with the physical and chemical principles underlying the solid-state densification and sintering of powders to obtain technical ceramics. Technical ceramics are a wide family of high-value materials for structural or functional applications (magnetic, optic, dielectric…). On the other hand, glass and glass-ceramics are materials prepared from the liquid state. Their elaboration is briefly presented at the end of this part. . The third part concerns the synthesis of small inorganic materials by low temperature routes. Basics of aqueous precipitation, sol-gel condensation, high-boiling solvent synthesis are thoroughly described, followed by the presentation of different methods for a chemist concerning the specific elaboration of thin or thick films.
