Course objectives
The course offers laboratory excercises on advanced experimental techniques in solid state physics with the emphasis on semiconductors.
During the course the students will acquire necessary theoretical background of the selected experimental techniques, perform the experiments in the laboratories, and analyze and physically interpret the experimental data obtained.

Using individually carried out laboratory exercises, the main objective of the course is to provide the students with the ability to
- list and describe the theoretical background of the selected experimental techniques
- apply the advanced experimental techniques in solid state physics
- process the measured data and analyze physically the obtained results.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able after the the course:
- independently use the experimental setups
- evaluate the measurements, determine random errors and estimate their systematic errors
- explain the physical prinicples of measurements and the observed phenomena
- recommend a particular type of experiment in order to determine a given property of material
- write a report on the measurement in the form common in scientific literature
