The course is worth 7.5 credits and runs at half speed during the fist half of the spring semester.
The aim of the course is for the student to acquire basic knowledge and understanding of different scattering methods used to study structural and dynamic properties of colloidal dispersions. The course begins with basic scattering theory, followed by a presentation of various experimental methods such as Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS), Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS) as well as static and dynamic light scattering. This is complemented by computer labs/exercises in data analysis and modelling of static scattering data, and experiments/exercises on colloidal dispersions with SAXS as well as static and dynamic light scattering.
It is compulsory to register for the exams. Registration is made through the student portal. More information and the exam schedule can be found on the page: Exams
Registration for the exams opens three weeks before the exam date and closes one week before the exam.
Course material and communication
All online course material can be found on Canvas. You will only have access to the course in Canvas after you have been registered. Communication with students taking the course will either be sent out to their student email or at Canvas.
In case of absence
In case you are ill or will miss mandatory classes for any other reason an e-mail should be sent to the responsible staff for that class AND cc to the course responsible (Anna Stradner). For the computer lab exercises contact Andrew Jackson and for the scattering lab exercises contact the course assistants (Guanqun Du or Marija Dubackic).
KEMM67 Scattering Methods replaces KEMM37 Scattering Methods from spring term 2020.
