Master's Programme in Materials Research is responsible for the course.
Module where the course belong to:
- MATR300 Advanced Studies in Materials Research.
- Study Track in Experimental Materials Physics
- Study Track in Inorganic Materials Chemistry
The course is available to students from other degree programmes.
B.Sc. in some field of natural sciences
After the course the student will be able to:
- summarise and explain the basic physics of synchrotron radiation,
- compare the performance of synchrotron radiation with other X-ray sources and identify their advantages/disadvantages,
- describe the experimental methods and measurement techniques accessible in synchrotron radiation,
- identify the suitable methods and techniques to study biological, chemical and physical properties of materials,
- design a project for materials science, biology, physics or chemistry research using synchrotron radiation.
The recommended time/stage of studies for completion: any time
The course is offered every other year (odd years) in the autumn term, in I period. If you wish other arrangements, please contact the teacher.
