      The goal Getting to know the physical basics of radiation damage in modern electrical engineering materials, electronic components and devices, as well as the possible changes in the properties and performance of these devices caused by exposure to ionizing radiation.
      The outcome Ability to anticipate the effects that various types of ionizing radiation cause in electrical engineering materials and electronic components, apply measures for removing or mitigating these effects, or predict the functionality of irradiated devices.
      Contents of lectures Radiation effects in bipolar and unipolar circuits, semiconductor memories, solar cells, gas tubes, memristors, organic dielectrics, biomaterials, nanostructured materials and components based on these materials. Radiation hardness testing. Measures for protecting electronic devices from ionizing radiation.
