MCh 20 2 Analytical Methods for Condensed Matter

Crystallography, X-ray and electron radiation, structure determination of crystalline and non-crystalline materials.
  • Basic concepts of crystallography
  • Physical fundamentals of diffraction phenomena with X-rays and electron beams
  • Application of these methods for structure determination of crystalline and non crystalline substances
  • Vibrational spectroscopy of solids, factor group analysis
  • Electron spectra and magnetism of transition metals

Qualification goals

  • Ability to apply the imparted knowledge for the indexing of
    diffraction images and for structure determination from diffraction data
  • Development of problem solving skills and enhancement of analytical
  • Acquisition of methodological knowledge and knowledge of equipment
    critical handling of results
  • Recognition of the limits of scientific methods
  • Recognition of "pitfalls" and avoidance of misinterpretations
  • Development of the spatial imagination
