This course will cover the basics of ion and electron irradiation effects in materials in the context of ion implantation, swift heavy and highly charged ion irradiation, and transmission electron microscopy. The course will be taught through lectures, exercises and seminars. The first 1/3 of the course is reserved for ion irradiation, the second 1/3 for electron irradiation, and the last 1/3 is reserved for student seminars, which will delve into details of these topics with the help of current literature.

Assessment and permitted materials
