According to very recent Corona regulations given by the Rector and Deans of our University/Faculties, we have to start our lab course "Materials Science" already in June 2020 and finish it by end of July 2020 at the latest.

Therefore the organisation meeting have to take place already in the last week of May; it will be on Monday May 25, 2020, 11:00 h and held as a video-conference online, what means that you have to share the meeting from your home (office) using your PC or laptop equipped with microphone and camera. You can join the meeting by clicking the URL for a common JITSI video-conference

For its opening you need to use your uni-account, which is - if you are a student - identical with your unet-e-mail.

We are sorry that due to the recent regulations mentioned above, we can accept only 4 (four) students to be inscribed in that lab course during the summer term 2020. Perhaps somebody of you steps back voluntarily already now; the lab course is held each semester and so also in the winter term 2020-21 beginning in October 2020. As an exception, we can already register you already now for the winter term 2020-21 and guarantee a participation there. If there are no volunteers for stepping back, we have then to negotiate the 4 students for the actual lab course SS 2020 during the organisation meeting.


Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Die Lehrveranstaltung kann auch auf Deutsch abgehalten werden, falls alle Teilnehmer Deutsch sprechen.
The course intends to provide a general introduction into the tasks of crystal structure determination (a) from X-ray powder data as well as (b) from X-ray single crystal data.
These techniques will be demonstrated on selected examples.
The course is highly recommended as a specific preparation for master work and/or a doctoral thesis in materials chemistry.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The judging of students is derived from the activity in seminars, the engagement during the experiments, and from the result of final questioning.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

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.
