Topic outline

  • Goals outcomes assessment

    Learning objectives

    Introducing PhD students to the latest instrumental methods for non-destructive chemical analysis, primarily to the kind of instruments which are commercially produced nowadays. Special attention is devoted to the distinction between physical (not mechanical) and chemical characterization. An additional goal of this course is to understand the difference between corpuscular and wave excitation and what methods can/cannot be used in order to obtain relevant results needed for student’s scientific-research or professional work. The candidate will become familiar with the laboratories in our country in which laboratory equipment for non-destructive chemical analysis is used.

    Learning outcomes

    • A student has a good knowledge of non-destructive methods of chemical analysis and their potentials and limitations.
    • Student can choose the right method or a set of methods which can give relevant results needed for his scientific-research or professional work.
    • Student can perform a critical analysis of the obtained results. He can promote new approaches of work in professional surroundings or educational environment.

    Assessment

    • Outcome 1: Term papers with topics related to non-destructive chemical analysis methods.
    • Outcome 2: Oral exam with tasks formulated in such way to show how student understands differences between non-destructive methods, their working principles and instrumentation. Student need to show that he/she is able to select specific non-destructive method in regard to type of sample and the criterion of results.
