Course objectives
Using laboratory work in groups, the main objective of the lecture si to provide the students with the ability to
- list and describe selected modern imaging methods: mainly optical but also x-ray microscopy and atomic force microscopy
- apply these methods in particular measurements
  • 1. Two beam interference, time and spatial coherence of the light 2. Interference contrast of Zeiss-Epival microscope 3. Linear polarization of light, polarizatoion microscope 4. Interference of ordinary and extraordinary beam, contrast at double refraction samples 5. Microscope, function of field lense 6. Method of light and dark field by optical microscope 7. Digital image recording 8. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) 9. X-ray imaging methods 10. Mikroscopy in technological clean rooms
