Synopsis:

Abstract:

The subject is composed of lectures, exercises and discussion regarding the basic methods of characterization. The aim of the subject is to introduce students to the most common methods of materials characterization, their outputs and the interpretation of the obtained data. An emphasis is placed on the individual work of the students with current scientific articles in the field of materials characterization. A part of the subject is an excursion to the laboratories of the department and its collaborating institutions. After passing this subject, the student should be able to choose the adequate characterization method for a particular material and evaluate the obtained results.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

Outline:

1. Introduction and examples of irreplaceable employment of materials characterization in science and technology.
