The judging of students is derived from the activity in seminars, the engagement during the experiments, and from the result of final questioning.
Correct handling of modern research facilities, good physico/chemical understanding, suitable documentation of experiments.
The course is highly recommended as a specific preparation for master work and/or a doctoral thesis in materials chemistry.
The lab course uses modern audio-visual tools and state-of-the-art research instruments.
A series of books on the specific subjects treated in the total labcourse will be made available to the participants; the part covered in physical chemistry may be studied from 1) M.M. Woolfson, "An Introduction to X-ray Crystallography", Cambridge University Press, Online Publication January 2010; Online ISBN:9780511622557 ; Paperback ISBN:9780521423595
