Fundamentals about solid state (in english)
  • Symmetries : Symmetry, restriction of symmetry, point groups, space groups, disorder, modulated phases, quasi-crystals, plastic crystals, mesophases i.e. liquid crystals
  • Non-Stoichiometry : for inorganic and organic compounds, influence on macroscopic properties of materials

Crystallization processes
  • Crystallization methods - Crystallization in solution , Solid-gas, desolvation, polymorphic transformations induced by stress
  • Nucleation (teaching in English by European expert: J. ter HORST -Univ. Strathclyde - UK)
  • Crystal habit, interface structures (teaching in English by European expert: E. VLIEG - Univ. Nijmegen - NL)
  • Defects (0D, 1D, 2D and 3D) in real crystals, solid solutions, solid-state chiral discrimination.
