Abstract: The course consists of selected topics of acoustics, impedance spectroscopy, optical and electron microscopy, plasma physics, photonics and optoelectronics. During the course are being also explained mechanisms of electric conductivity in gases, liquids and solid states with the special focus on organic materials and nanostructures. Besides the physical principles the course contains applications linked to the mentioned phenomena that there are essential for engineering students specializing in nanotechnologies. The aim of the seminars is to bring closer look at the lectured topics via solving arithmetic tasks, measuring exercises in laboratory, excursions to selected scientific facilities and realizing individual projects.
