Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
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.
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.
Basics of quantum mechanics and semiconductor physics/nanotechnology.
