On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
describe the principles for the structure of solids
describe specific crystal structures by applying crystallographic basic concepts
account for the generation and effects of X-ray radiation on matter
describe the experimental use of the diffraction phenomenon
use powder diffraction data for characterising cubic substances
relate intensity mathematically to structural parameters and derive extinction conditions
use crystallographic data for a validated phase analysis
analyse thermograms and phase diagrams in known systems
Fundamentals regarding the solid state, including selected structural examples. Theoretical and practical crystallography. Unary and binary phase diagrams. X-ray diffraction, thermal analysis and orientation about other characterisation techniques.
Lectures, lessons and laboratory work.
Written examination at the end of the course. For passing the course, passed laboratory course is also required. The laboratory course is marked to 1 HE credits.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
