This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phones camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes youll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

Introduction to Solid State Chemistry is a one-semester college course on the principles of chemistry. This unique and popular course satisfies MIT's general chemistry degree requirement, with an emphasis on solid-state materials and their application to engineering systems. You'll begin with an exploration of the fundamental relationship between electronic structure, chemical bonding, and atomic order, then proceed to the chemical properties of "aggregates of molecules," including crystals, metals, glasses, semiconductors, solutions and acid-base equilibria, polymers, and biomaterials. Real-world examples are drawn from industrial practice (e.g. semiconductor manufacturing), energy generation and storage (e.g. automobile engines, lithium batteries), emerging technologies (e.g. photonic and biomedical devices), and the environmental impact of chemical processing (e.g. recycling glass, metal, and plastic).
Outstanding pedagogy. Excellent choice of topics. Integrates culture with science exquisitely! I found these elements to be of significant value in this course: (1) chemistry that relates to the real everyday world plus the chemistry of semiconductors, crystals, and biology (we are polymers!) (2) At every opportunity Sadoway points out how chemistry can be engineered for desired properties like recyclability or price (3) Sadoway's lectures are clear and crisp (only slightly more material than I could absorb in a sitting) (4) Sadoway always brings in culture: giving human histories, tales of ethics, playing music and clips from movies: he relates the subject to the humanities (5) professionalism: Sadoway models the values, ethics, and consideration of details that we need in future engineers or scientists.
