Information

Examination topics

The examination will focus on assessing your understanding of the physical principles and phenomena behind both microscopy and spectroscopy. Instead of derivations of complex formulas, more important is to understand and explain what is being described, how radiation of different kinds interacts with solid-state or molecular systems, and how this understanding can be used for studying the properties of materials.

Assessment and permitted materials

No course materials or textbooks will be allowed in the exam, but you may need a calculator and a ruler, and you are allowed to bring one sheet of single-sided paper with your notes.
