Module content
Seminar classes:

The classes are divided into two parts. The first part consist of a series of lectures about:
- history of microscopy, optical and electron microscopies as basic methods of surface morphology investigation;
- Atomic Force Microscopy, the physics behind the measurements, schematic construction of microscope, working modes, sample properties measured, error sources, sample usage;
- selected derivative microscopies like Electrostatic Force Microscopy, Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy and Tip Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy, the physics behind the measurements, schematic construction of microscopes and their usefulness in different fields of science.
The second part consists of students’ presentations about different researches in which Atomic Force Microscopy played a vital role. Students are able to choose articles from any field of science (the one that interests them is recommended).

Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

Students can earn between 3.0 to 5.0 points for presentation. Additional points can be acquired by:
- answering questions regarding presentation given by the student (0.0-0.2 per answer);
- asking relevant questions after another student’s presentation (0.1-0.3 per question);
- being present on every seminar (0.3);
- preparing the presentation for first two seminars with students’ presentation (varies).
The points are converted to the closest mark (i.e. 3.0-3.2 points to 3.0, 3.3-3.7 to 3.5, 3.8-4.2 to 4.0, 4.3-4.7 to 4.5 and 4.8+ to 5.0).

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

None.

Recommended literature and teaching resources:

Review articles about the use of Atomic Force Microscopy methods in different fields of science (the exact articles can vary depending on student’s scientific interests).
