Teaching methods

Interactive Course

ATTENTION: the course is 4h a day in the same room. Consequently, there is an increased infection risk. Therefore:

1) daily reqirement for testing and

2) FFP2 mask

obligatory.

Mode of examination

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Due to the current situation, the practical training in the WS2021/22 can unfortunately only be carried out in a very limited and safety-conscious manner in small groups.

Priority is given to those students who need transmission electron microscopy directly for their research and who will apply it independently.

Unfortunately, there is no guarantee for participation in the praktikum.
Therefore, if you are interested, please contact one of the lecturers until 26th Sept. in order to make further plans. A letter of interest is required.

Geplante Termine WS 2021/22:

Die Arbeiten am TEM finden im TEM Labor im Freihaus (8.Stock, gelber Turm) statt.
Dauer: üblicherweise 09:00 bis 13:00
