Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Neutrons are widely used to investigate systems in very diverse research fields like material design, energy materials, superconductors, geo sciences, cultural heritage, biology, particle physics and fundamental research. Neutron methods have unique properties and are complementary to other methods. In this seminar, we discuss contemporary research and methods with neutrons relevant to science and industry.
After successful participation in the module the student can use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowledge from scientific papers into a presentation and obtained presentation skills.
They have learned about recent topics in the field of research with neutrons in industry and science.
Student is familiar with solid state physics

Learning and Teaching Methods
Preparation and presentation of a scientific talk, beamer presentation, board work, advisor discussion, literature studies
Presentation materials, complementary literature, internet
Specialized literature to the individual topics of the seminar talks will be provided
own literature search
Description of exams and course work
In the course of the seminar each student individually prepares a talk of about 30 minutes on a topic of current research and actively participates in the discussion about all the talks in the seminar. Hence participation in essentially all dates of the seminar is expected. Based on the individual talk the learning outcome is tested.
Aspects of evaluation are especially:
- Illustrative and clear presentation of a topical research field within a scientific talk
- Answering questions on the scientific content of the talk
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
