The examination will conducted in a written form.

Please bring a calculator and a ruler.


Note: The time of your registration within the registration period has no effect on the allocation of places (no first come, first served).



Examination topics

The material lectured in 2020S in its entirety. If you took the course in an earlier semester, please contact Toma Susi for access to the Moodle workspace.

The Course is to be regarded as one, single and inseparable entity together with the associated exercise class 260073-1 PUE, which is listed separately for technical reasons only. What we show in class will be worked upon and truly learned by individual and independent work on the homework sets of 260073-1 PUE, which will be distributed weekly.

If you attend the class, read the literature and do the homework problems, you will have commanded sufficient knowledge of the exam contents -- knowledge meaning that you will then be able to confront and solve physical problems at the level of those given at the homework assignments.

For students in the new Master's Curriculum: No exams exist on exercise classes and no separate note will be given, since the class and the exercises are conceived as one entity ("module"). Accordingly, there will be just an exam of the whole Course.

Assessment and permitted materials

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this examination will be held as digital oral exam. Individual time slots will be scheduled via Moodle and each exam conducted using the Moodle-integrated video conferencing software (only a web browser is required).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

To pass the exam, basic physical understanding of the microscopy and spectroscopy needs to be demonstrated. The grade will depend on the depth and accuracy of the answers to the questions and follow-up questions.

If only half of the questions are correctly answered, the grade is 4. If more questions are correctly answered but significant prompting from the examiners is required or the answers are partial, the grade will be 3. If most questions are correctly answered with only some prompting, the grade is 2. For a grade of 1, correct answers to almost all questions with no prompting will need to be given.
