Summary

The aim of this course is to improve the knowledge of students in the field of microstructural characterisation of materials. Lectures are dealing with electron microscopy and spectroscopy techniques: transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, Auger spectroscopy and rtg spectral microanalysis. Practical examples are used to illustrate basic mechanisms of image contrast formation, diffraction analysis and local chemical microanalysis.
