Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim is to deal with relevant research topics on aerosol physics, with a special focus on aerosol optics. The students will learn to read scientific literature and give scientific presentations.

In this course students learn...
- to read and understand scientific literature
- about current research topics in aerosol physics
- to give scientific presentations
- to participate in a dicussion and ask questions
- to give constructive feedback to others

Method: Presentation and discussion of current literature or current master and doctoral theses. Furthermore, the status of ongoing research projects is presented.

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.

Assessment and permitted materials

Continuous assessment course.
Presentation of a topic previously agreed on with the teachers (current literature or master's or doctoral thesis).
