As part of the project a workshop within some selected topic of physics will be carried out. It will be obligatory for all students and should be considered as a repetition within these areas. The workshop consists of lectures and has an individual continuous evaluation based on exercises given through the lectures.
Workshop will cover:
Knowledge within the following areas:
Quantum mechanics: The general concepts and methods of quantum mechanics covering subjects like: Operators, wave functions and eigenvalues. The Schrödinger equation. position, momentum, energy and angular momentum in quantum mechanics.
Solid State Physics: Crystal structure, diffraction and reciprocal lattice, vibrations and phonons, electronic band structure.
Optics: Geometrical optics (ray tracing, imaging and aberrations) and physical optics (polarization, interference and diffraction).
Basic quantum mechanics, solid state physics and optics.
The student will be able to use the described theories and methods to understand and solve problems within the described areas of quantum mechanics, solid state physics and optics. Furthermore it will enable them to better follow the courses in the Master Program of nanomaterials and nanophysics.
This project module will give the student experience with advanced methods for synthesis and characterisation of nanostructures and nanomaterials.
• Methods for creation of nanostructures
• Methods for characterisation of nanostructures
• Optical spectroscopy on nanostructures
• Advanced microscopy (e.g. SEM, AFM)
• Application of advanced methods for creation of small
structures based on lithography and/or self-organising systems
• Application of various techniques for studying the fundamental properties of nanostructures like, e.g., size, shape, and electronic properties
Workshop and project work.
This is a 15 ECTS project module and the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student.
