Materials sciences

Understanding our technologies starts with understanding matter:

while physics enable us to observe and understand many materials behaviors, it takes some chemistry, and a finer representation of the matter's consitution to really understand their invisible properties such as electro-magnetic phenomenums.

We will focus over these pages on the reasons why materials do or do not conduct the electricity, and what happens when it does, starting with fundamental safety issues.

We will then be able to dress up fundamental properties of electro-active materials used in electronics to produce, control and exploit electric energy.
