Description du contenu de l'enseignement

Simple introductive considerations on polymers, on Soft matter science& on Colloidal science
Chain characteristics: molar masses; configurations and conformations
States of matter (glass, crystal, rubber and melt) and phase transitions in polymers
Thermodynamics: solution and mixing; rubber elasticity
Main properties of polymeric materials (except mechanical properties, topic of a specific course): electrical, optical, thermal, and specific properties
Main polymer processing techniques
Description of macroscopic behavior, mesoscopic length scales, and atomic details
This course will also present a general overview of soft matter and colloidal materials and of the concepts used to describe their properties.
 

Compétences à acquérir

Students should acquire a general overview on polymer science and polymeric materials and on the systems described by soft matter science as well as general concepts, mainly from statistical physics, used for their description. Advantages and drawbacks of polymeric materials for a specific use as well as experimental techniques developed for the study of these systems will also be presented.
