The course is taught in English. Aim of the course is to provide the theoretical and the experimental tools concerning materials and characterization techniques involved in micro and nanotechnological processes. The role of this course is central for the development of the professional profile of a Materials Engineer, as it develops several skills required for learning the other courses in Master's Degree. The course is divided into two parts: in the first, the student learns the fundamental aspects of the physical and chemical properties of functional materials involved in micro and nanotechnological processes. In the second part, the student learns basic notions about the main characterization techniques dealing with materials (homogeneous and nanostructured) and synthesis processes.

The course concerns theoretical lectures with the discussion of several application case studies and experimental demonstrations performed in research laboratories. The theoretical lectures will be performed in class or online or blended, depending on sanitary emergency conditions. The exp. demonstrations will be filmed and made available to students
