Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal is to acquaint students with chemical methods and implements for structure a chemical composition study of nanomaterials.

Teaching methods



The subject give fundamentals of transmition and scanning electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy and X-ray diffraction methods. Students will be acquainted with application of the methods for structure, chemical and phase composition study of materials. Students will be also acquainted with some chosen methods of nanomaterials study (chromatography, electrophoresis, IR spectrometry, thermal analysis, NMR).
