13021 - Surface Physics and 2D Materials Modulübersicht

Module Number: 13021
Module Title:Surface Physics and 2D Materials
  Oberflächenphysik und 2D-Materialien
Department: Faculty 1 - Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Responsible Staff Member:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil. Flege, Jan Ingo
Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: Every summer semester
Credits: 6
Learning Outcome:After successful completion of the module, the students master the basics of experimental and theoretical concepts of surface physics. Using the example of the topic of this module, they know methods for gaining knowledge, classify physical findings in the overall context and cross link the individual results.
In addition, they can apply social competences such as the ability to cooperate as well as other individual competences such as accuracy, patience, curiosity, initiative, etc.
