        The goal Comprehensive presentation of methods for characterization. Primary objectives are detailed introduction to the experimental equipment and knowledge of the physical laws based on which a given method is implemented. The expected result is to teach students to use compatible methods in the analysis and characterization of materials used in photonics and nanoelectronics.
        The outcome The main goal is to prepare students for basic characterizations, introduction to the technology of obtaining nanomaterials and structures and full training for independent work on the method for characterization, by student choice.
        Contents of lectures Introduction; Engineering of general and specific properties of materials for applications in photonics and nanoelectronics; Application of solid-state physics; Production technology of thin films by molecular beam epitaxy; Production technology of quantum dots and quantum structures; Vibrational spectroscopy - Raman and infrared; Galvanomagnetic measurements - the Hall experiment.
        Contents of exercises Laboratory work on selected laboratory equipment (Raman experiment, Photoluminescence, AFM, reflectance measurements in the far IR region).
