The course covers X-ray, electron, and ion spectroscopies, electron and tip microscopies, and detectors and analysers. The stress is put on principles and theoretical description of fundamental phenomena governing the spectroscopies and microscopies.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Pátková Vlasta (19.11.2018)

Students will be able to:

describe and explain physical phenomena on which the methods are based,

propose a suitable microscopic or spectroscopic method for extracting of specific information about material,

suggest proper analytical conditions, i.e. detector, analyser, primary source, sample preparation, to optimise measuring conditions.
