Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After the course, students will understand the basic microscopy theory for electron microscopes and learns how to use following microscopy methods for material science applications:

1. Transmission electron microscopy TEM

2. Scanning electron microscopy SEM

3. Atomic force microscopy

4. Electron microscopy tomography

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course gives basic knowledge of the microscopy of materials nanoscale structures - including soft and hard materials. Lectures will concentrate on transmission electron microscopy (TEM), cryo-electron microscopy, high resolution imaging, electron diffraction and analytical microscopy by using elemental analyses (EDX, EELS). Additionally scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and methods to prepare samples are lectures.
