Aims, contents and method of the course

In this internship students deepen their knowledge and skills in the field of aerosol physics and carry out experiments with research equipment under supervision. The contents include a selection of measurement methods from the field of aerosol physics: condensation nucleus counter, differential mobility analyzer, optical spectrometer, pipe losses, impactor, deposition in the lung, formation of secondary aerosols or atmospheric optics.
The experiments have to be evaluated and a written report has to be drawn up. An independent presentation of one of the practical examples, supported by the experimental results, is an essential contribution to the final evaluation.

Note: It is recommended to choose this course only if the lecture 260010 VO "Aerosol Physics - Physics of Disperse Systems" or the module WPF 9 "Aerosol Physics" in the Bachelor Degree Physics at the University of Vienna has been completed.
