Aims, contents and method of the course

A practical survey on Materials Physics and its most important methods.

Assessment and permitted materials

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

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Correct handling of modern research facilities, good physical understanding, suitable documentation of experiments, and the specific preparation for a bachelor-, master-, diploma work , and/or a doctoral thesis on materials physics.

Examination topics

The lab course uses modern audio-visual tools and state-of-the-art research instruments.
