Institute for Applied Materials – Materials Science and Engineering

Materials Characterization

  • type: Vorlesung (V)
  • semester: WS 20/21
  • lecturer: Dr.-Ing. Jens Gibmeier
    apl. Prof. Dr. Reinhard Schneider
  • sws: 2
  • lv-no.: 2174586
  • information:

    The lecture will be online (asynchronous). The lecture notes, supplementary material and the recording of lecture slides with audio track will be managed via ILIAS. In addition, regular Q&A hybrid events will be offered together with the tutorial/lab course. The registration will be possible without restriction until 06.11.2020. Subsequently, registration is only possible by direct contacting Dr.-Ing. Jens Gibmeier.


The following methods will be introduced within this lecture:

  • microscopic methods: optical microscopy, electron microscopy (SEM/TEM), atomic force microscopy
  • material and microstructure analyses by means of X-ray, neutron and electron beams
  • analysis methods at SEM/TEM (e.g. EELS)
  • spectroscopic methods (e.g. EDS / WDS)

learning objectives:
The students have fundamental knowledge about methods of material analysis. They have a basic understanding to transfer this fundamental knowledge on problems in engineering science. Furthermore, the students have the ability to describe technical material by its microscopic and submicroscopic structure.
