Credits allocated: 5
 
Recommended semester/trimester: Materials Engineering - master (compulsory), 3. semester
Materials Engineering - master (compulsory), 3. semester
Level of study: 1. + 2., 2.
Prerequisites for registration: none
 
Assesment methods:
During the semester there will be two written tests of knowledge in a lecture in the range of lectures and exercises with a maximum score of over 10 points. Students must develop four projects in laboratory exercises with the scores given to each of 10 points. Student who receives less than 15 points can not be granted credit.
 
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The purpose of this class is to introduce students to the theoretical and practical aspects of experimental materials characterization by electron, x-ray and gamma radiation. A broad range of topics will be covered in order to give the exposure to all areas of materials science. In general, the class will introduce the experimental aspects of data and error analysis for virtually any technique. Students will be expected to understand the following concepts about each technique covered in class: scanning electron microscopy, Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy, Wave Dispersive Spectroscopy, Electron Backscattered Diffraction, Auger Electron Spectrosopy, Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy, Optical Emission Spectroscopy, X-ray Fluorescent Spectroscopy, Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy and Mössbauer Spectroscopy. Evaluation of measured data will receive an overview of the possibilities of the application of these methods in the study of metallic and non-metallic materials.
