Aims, contents and method of the course

Students deepen their knowledge and skills in the field of experimental aerosol physics. Under supervision, but independently, experiments on current environmental issues are conducted and the results discussed.
Prior to the experiments, introductory presentations are prepared by students to gain knowledge and understanding of the theoretical and physical concepts used throughout the course.
The experiments have to be evaluated and the results have to be documented in a written protocol. In addition, the independent presentation of the results is an essential contribution to the final assessment.

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. Knowledge of the contents of these courses is assumed.

Assessment and permitted materials

Continuous assessment course.
Introductory presentations, practical course work, written protocols and final presentation.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Minimum requirement
