Introduction to microscopic and spectral techniques for materials characterization course enables the student to orientate themselves in microscopic methods of investigation on the structure of materials and their possibilities and limitations. Students will learn the theory of microscopic images formation, diffraction and spectral methods of investigating the materials structure and chemical composition. Thanks to this, the student should acquire the skills of interpreting microscopic images and hence obtaining information about the structure, defects, phase composition, and understanding the relationship and correlation between the properties of materials and their structure.
