Solids are an important part of our materials-intensive world and at the
foundation of many emerging technologies. This course focuses on the relationships
among structure, composition, and periodic properties; the characterization
of atomic and molecular arrangements in crystalline and amorphous solids
such as metals, minerals, ceramics, semiconductors and proteins; and applications
to the fields of electronics, optics, magnetics, catalysis, and energy generation
and storage. Laboratory work emphasizes the synthesis, purification and
characterization of inorganic compounds. Three class periods and one laboratory
period per week. Offered each fall.
Prerequisite: Chemistry 220 or Chemistry 230 or Geology 200 or Physics 210.

Hydrogen Atom Orbital Viewer
by Paul Falstad. Under the View menu, unselect "Energy" but keep the "Phase as Color" option.
When the colors look good, choose "Stopped" in the window so the phase does not keep changing. Note that you can drag the orbital to look
at it from different sides. Drag the applet window to fill the browser window and then print the browser window. (jsmol)
3-D Graphic Examples of Atomic Orbitals
modified from Thomas Chasteen shows electron probability density.
Be sure to drag on the orbital picture or turn "spin" on. (jsmol)
Hydrogenic Atomic Orbitals - Single Electron Orbitals
by S. Immel.
Using this java program requires modified system security settings so it is probably not usable until updated by the author.
The program can show orbitals with constant probability surfaces (isosurfaces), represent probability as a dotted model, display angular nodes or show slices through the orbital. Be sure to drag on the orbital picture.
