Student memorises basic physical equations and definitions. Student derives and clarifies the selected physical relations and equations. Student applies physical equations for solution of model exercises.

Teaching methods



Cílem předmětu je motivovat studenty ke studiu aplikované fyziky v některém ze směrů, které se pěstují na Institutu fyziky, HGF, VŠB – Technická univerzita Ostrava. Proto jsou studenti seznamováni s problematikou těchto směrů, laboratorním vybavením, základními vědeckými a výzkumnými aktivitami apod. Základní směry vědeckovýzkumného zaměření aplikované fyziky jsou totožné s tématy přednášek a seminářů.

Other requirements

Systematic preparation for lectures.


Subject has no prerequisities.


Subject has no co-requisities.

Subject syllabus:

1. Applied nuclear physics 2. Defectoscopy and diagnostics 3. Optical diagnostics and optoelectronics 4. Special materials 5. Progress technologies of material disintegration For each of branches there are planned two lectures in the total amount of four lessons' hours and four seminars in the total amount of eight lessons' hours. This set is completed by introducing and concluding lectures about role of the applied physics building the bridge between theoretical description of the reality and its application for solution of problems of technical practice. These lectures will be supplemented by seminars with examples from practice, solution of model problems, etc.
