Course content

General scattering theory applied to examples from dynamic ligth scattering (DLS), small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), wide- and small-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS and SAXS). Three lab-exercises (DLS, SANS, WAXS) including report that will be graded.

Learning outcome

The student shall know general scattering theory applied to examples from dynamic light-scattering (DLS), small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), wide- and small-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS and SAXS). The student shall know simple data-analysis from DLS, SANS, WAXS experiments, including knowledge about standard experimental set-ups, which factors determine experimental resolutions etc.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures given by professors, three obligatory lab exercises (DLS, SANS (including 1 travel to an international neutron facility, for example to ESS in Lund in Sweden), WAXS). Each lab report must be passed. Ecan student will give one open presentation based on a scientific publication given to each student about 2 week prior to the presentation. Obligatory oral final exam must be passed.

Further on evaluation

Partial assessment: 3x 20% tasks, 40% oral exam.
