Digital- & Präsenz-basierter Kurs

classroom language
This course concerns the operation of modern electron microscopes as well as the techniques used in analytical electron microscopy. The following questions will be addressed:

1.) Why doing electron microscopy?
2.) How does an electron microscope work?
3.) How does an electron beam interact with the sample?
4.) Which information can we gain in electron microscopy?
5.) How to use an electron beam as a supercontinuum light source?

Various imaging and analytical methods for structural characterization and investigation of the electronic properties of different material classes are dealt with. By learning about the advantages, disadvantages and requirements of each method, the students are enabled to decide which methods in electron microscopy are the most suitable to address the respective scientific question.
Basic knowledge of quantum mechanics and diffraction theory,
Basic knowledge of solid state physics and electrodynamics
