Planned learning activities and teaching methods:
Subject Theory and interpretation of vibrational spectra is divided into lectures and seminars. Lectures are oriented on the explanations and clarifycation of the general theoretical bases of the vibrational (infrared and Raman) spectroscopy. Seminars are oriented on the solving of the practical examples and problems in the form of the particular spectra of the molecules. Seminars are directly interlocked on the contents of the lectures.
Assesment methods and criteria:
Subject Theory and interpretation of vibrational spectra is finished by the exam. Conditions for the attendance on exam are complete participation on the seminars and successful solving the molecular structures on seminars in the minimum extent of 50%. The exam is written and consist of theoretical part.
Language of instruction:
Slovak, English
Work placement(s):
There is no compulsory work placement in the course unit.
