Content

Keywords

X-rays, Neutrons, Imaging, Spectroscopy, Scattering

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Basic understanding of materials science

Teaching methods

Lectures (3h) and Exercises (1h), excursion to PSI visiting the large scale facilities

The nature of the exercises will vary, depending on the topic at hand. For one selected material science application example the students should write a beamtime proposal according to the typical guidelines used at synchrotrons.

Assessment methods

One student project on beamtime proposal which will be presented within the last two weeks of the semester and one oral examination. The oral exam counts for 75% the student project 25%.
