Supervisor:
Department of Solid State Engineering
Synopsis:

The lecture cycle focuses on the structure of solids from the point of view of the arrangement of atoms. The first part focuses on application-interesting structures from metallic materials to molecular crystals. In the second part we will look at the possibilities of observing the atomic structure using X-rays, both from the point of view of the average and the local structure. Objective of the course is also the use of special programs designed to study and analyze the structure and microstructure of solids.

Requirements:

The subject follows basic knowledge of solid structure and X-ray diffraction

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Metal structures

2. Ceramic structures

3. Molecular crystals and special crystals

4. Ordering

5. Crystal structure solution

6. Solution of crrystal structure using powder diffraction records: SW tools

7. Rietveld method

8. Total Scattering and Pair Distribution Functions (PDF)

9. Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and reflectivity

10. EXAFS - Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure
