This course focuses on the diffusion in solids. The `diffusion in solids' part deals with the kinetics of charged particles in solid. It starts with the expression of point defects in ionic crystals. Devices, which are related to the motion of charged particles, are introduced.
The studies in this course will give you the important concepts on the research and development of high temperature materials and processes.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the analogies between mass, momentum and energy transports.
2) Describe the point defects in solid.
3) Calculate the defect concentration as a function of activity.
4) Explain the principal of high temperature electrochemical devices.

|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
At the beginning of each class, solutions to exercise problems that were assigned during the previous class are reviewed. Towards the end of class, students are given exercise problems related to the lecture given that day to solve. To prepare for class, students should read the course schedule section and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.
