Techniques for Characterizing Materials for Energy Systems
Inngår i studieprogram
Ph.d.-program i teknologi og realfag
The student will gain practical hands-on experience in the chosen techniques, including sample preparation, image processing and data analysis. Specimens relevant to the PhD project will be selected for study and the results incorporated in the PhD thesis.
The course will cover research level laboratory techniques including optical and electron microscopy, sample preparation, image analysis and interpretation. Electron microscopy will involve use of the scanning electron microscope (SEM). Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy (STM) will also be optional.
Electrical measurements will include 2-wire and 4-wire methods and the use of AC impedance spectroscopy. The student can select particular methods relevant to the PhD project for in-depth study.
