The lecture gives insight into different methods for materials and structural characterization.
Starting from wave-optics principles and basics in measurement instrumentation (including “noise”) different measurements methods will be introduced. For each of these methods will be introduced by examples from the scientific literature, after which the physics behind, the measurement principles and the characteristic experimental setup will be explained. The specific scientific question addressed and the basic route of data evaluation will be addressed.
The measurement methods will be e.g. X-ray spectroscopy, light- and X-ray scattering, mass spectrometry, rheology, mechanical tests. Other spectroscopic techniques or electron microscopy will be touched slightly.
