Aims

The of the course is to get deeper knowledge and skills in the field of selected advanced instumental methods of chemical, phase, structure and thermal analysis. Student gets to know the principals, measurement routes and experimental data treatment and evaluation. After a consultation with superviser the student also receives practical training at selected equipments led by the operator.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Teaching is not checked during the semester.
