AbstractIntroduction into the important methods for structural analysis (solid state NMR), crystal structure analysis and surface analysis techniques and their applications
ObjectiveKnowledge in solid state NMR, crystal structure analysis and surface analytical techniques relevant for inorganic materials
ContentThis lecture course consists of three parts 1) Solid state NMR 2) Surface and direct solid analysis 3) Crystal structure anaylsis. Most important fundamentals of the individual methods will be presented and details will be explained on most relevant inorganic applications
Lecture notesWill be given during the lectures
