Lecturers

Details

Time and place:

  • Tue 8:30-10:00, Room SR Staudtstr. 3

Fields of study

  • WF Ph-BA from SEM 5
  • WF Ph-MA from SEM 1
  • WF PhM-BA from SEM 5
  • WPF PhM-MA from SEM 1

Prerequisites / Organizational information

The elective course 'Structure of crystalline matter II' builds on the content of the elective course 'Structure on crystalline matter I'
where symmetry aspects and classification of ordered, crystalline matter is in the focus of the lecture. Basic aspects of X-ray scattering are as well taught in this elective course I. Students choosing elective course II should be familiar with the aspects of symmetry in the crystalline state, with the concept of the reciprocal lattice and the Ewald construction.


Content

The course 'Structure of crystalline matter II' deals with experimental X-ray scattering techniques, for studies on single crystals as well as on polycrystalline matter, which are used to extract structure information from crystalline matter.

A focus here will be on powder diffraction methods and data evaluation.

The different experimental methods will be presented in detail and selected applications will be explained.

To start with, a short introduction into the scattering of x-rays by matter will be given.
