Method of teaching: Lectures and Practices, Writhen& Oral Exam
Abstract contents: The discipline aims to get the students know the non-traditional methods for high- temperature (HT) synthesis of materials. It has been synchronized with the other disciplines in the field of materials science, including advanced materials synthesis. It enables the students to get acquainted with the classification of HT-processes and with all of the most important HT-methods, those differing from the traditional ones. In the essence of the matter, these are progressive methodologies that may be applied for synthesis from gas-mix, liquid and solid state phase in a wide range (nanomaterials, high disperse powders, powders with regulated granulation, fibers, including optical fibers, monocrystals, bulk samples and many others) materials. In short, the methods object of study are as follows: microwave and optical techniques, gas- flame and plasma methods, HT- methods for vitreous transition, vapor phase deposition and HT pyrolysis, including ultrasound spray pyrolysis, laser-, ion- and electron- beam methods, methods for mono-crystals growing, Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis (SHS), HT welds and HT catalytic synthesis and systems, combinatorial methods and etc.).
In short the discipline enables knowledge accumulation on the basic principles of HT processes, concepts and on the essence of methods for synthesis of numerous vitreous, ceramic and composites materials, as well as other inorganic coatings, thin films and welds. Lectures are in accordance with the other discipline matter in the filed of materials science and technology. Thus, there is an intension to consolidate the competency acquirement and a “liaison” to learn new items.
