Schedule, syllabus and examination date

Choose semester

Course content

The course provides an introduction into using electron microscopic technology (EM), and includes both Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

Learning outcome

The course will provide students with knowledge and information towards the most general EM-techniques and the relevant areas they are presently used. Students will be required to practise the methods and use the instruments, proving them with a basis for future studies and research assignments. Students must have additional experience to become authorised users of the microscopes, and this will be provided when needed.
