Practical exercises are part of the intraductory course. Their purpose is to let students apply theoretical knowledge and gain hands-on experience.
- To know about direct observation techniques of materials microstructure.
- To apply theoretical knowledge acquired in the previous course and discover experimental constraints.
- To develop interpretation capacity based on observations.
- To know about and how to use basic techniques of stereology and image analysis.
Laboratory work of electronic microscopy:
- Sample preparation.
- Scanning electron microscope SEM (SE,BSE,EBSD).
- Transmission electron microscope TEM (BF,DF,HRTEM,SAED).
