Seminar talks by students on current topics in the field of research. In particular, Bachelor and Master students of the chair should have an opprtunity to present their own research results in front of a larger and diverse audience.

Learning Outcome

After successful participation in the module the student can use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.

They have learned about recent topics in the field of research.

Preconditions

Basics of quantum mechanics and semiconductor physics/nanotechnology.

Courses, Learning and Teaching Methods and Literature

Courses and Schedule

Learning and Teaching Methods

Active and passive participation in scientific presentations and the following discussion.

Media

Power point presentations plus open discussions.

Literature

To be determined individually.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

In the course of the seminar each student individually prepares a talk on a topic of current research. Based on this talk the learning outcome is tested.
