The exact dates and times for the practical course will be agreed upon during the kick-off meeting, and the practical work will be arranged in accordance with the university guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The date and time of the kick-off meeting will be announced to the participants during the first week of semester via email.


Aims, contents and method of the course

During this lab course, two detailed experiments in the field of Solid State Physics will be conducted using modern research equipment. These examples will cover the synthesis of selected solids with reduced dimensionality, such as graphene, nanotubes, and thin films, their characterization with microscopic (scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy) and spectroscopic methods (Raman scattering, angle-resolved photoemission). Further, computer-based experiments (molecular dynamics) are planned within the lab course. A successful participation in the seminar low-dimensional solids (preferably during the same semester) is expected as a prerequisite.
