Find all material in an orderly manner

I have made new pdfs of all separate subjects.
They can be found here:

I have placed in the folder also one pdf which has them all joined:

Final dates for this course

the Q and A is not on thursday 13 but on monday 17 june

so next week off, to already review all lectures and prepare questions

>First presentations>
on thursday june 20th by Irene, Mauricio, Michael and Dr. Lutz (?)

second day of presentations
on Monday june 24th, Melissa, Felippe, Eduardo, Augustin

exam on july 1st

Prepare for Thursday

We finish colour mixing systems:

and we will look at the technique for colourmatching

The colourmatching topic is covered in great detail in Chapter 6 of Klein et al.
It suffices to read the phenomenalogical description. No need to bother going through all the mathematics.

Good luck with the preparation of what will probably be the end of the course

Lecture Monday 13-5-2013

Chapters 1; 2.1.1-2.1.4; 2.2 of Klein are relevant (Industrial Color Physics).
Discussed were the slides (1-48):

Now is also especially a good time to watch the VSauce video on my red vs yours

Book for the second part

The second part of this course leans heavily on the book by Klein: Industrial Color Physics from Springer Verlag.
It is accessible through the library (SIBDI), but for your convenience I have placed a copy here:

Chapter 1-3 are most relevant, but as always they form only supportive reading to where I put stress in my slides

Inspiration for your assignment

Suggested topics:
-Synthesis and characterisation of a new pigment for the coatingsindustry
-Synthesis and/or testing of a new binder chemistry for coatings applications
-Sustainable/Green alternatives to existing technologies in the paint industry
-Synthesis and characterization of a new additive (pref. dispersing agent)
-More fundamental topics like : Multiple scattering or advanced application of Kubelka Munk
-Characterisation of a historically used pigment (e.g. a natural pigment, and a synthetic alternative route)
-photochromic, thermochromic pigments or a new non-conventional pigment for paint
new effect pigment: diffraction pigments (diffraction gratings engineered on pigment particles)
-Carbon footprint studies on coatings
-Mechanism in an antocorrosive paint.
-Infrared reflective/transparent black pigments for lower energy consumption

 For this, spend some time searching journals or patents (the latter are harder to read). A couple of keywords entered in the search boxes with big publishers like ACS and Wiley will take you a long way.

Discuss your choice with me before the lecture of Monday May 20

Relevant journals which contain coating/pigment/colour related publications.:
Publisher ACS:

Title: Colour Reseach&Application

Cover image for Vol. 64 Issue 2Title: Materials and corrosion

Cover image for Vol. 129 Issue 3
Coloration technology (Wiley) has next to their regular articles an overview of their review articles: https://sibdi.ucr.ac.cr/http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1111/%28ISSN%291478-4408/homepage/review_articles_2009-2011.htm
