The aim of the subject is to introduce students to theory and practical aspects of advanced materials based on semiconductors, dielectrics and other materials with emphasis on a broad discussion focused on special materials' processing techniques, thin film preparation and their applications in electronics and tissue engineering. Students will also be introduced to a number of sophisticated analytical methods that, beyond their basic use, can be used in nanolithography and advanced surface analysis.

Students will know:

Possibilities of surface activation, modification and techniques for the preparation of thin films on solid substrates, with focus on applications in electronics and tissue engineering.

Theoretical basics in the field of interaction of solids with energy beam (plasma, laser, ion beam) and discussion of this knowledge in connection with applications.

Description of selected analytical methods from the point of view of their use for elemental, morphological and volume analysis, advantages and disadvantages for selected types of materials and applications.
