Department: Faculty 1 - Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Responsible Staff Member:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil. Fischer, Inga Anita
Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: On special announcement
Credits: 6
Learning Outcome:After successfully completing the module, students are acquainted with the fundamentals of light-matter interaction in nanostructured semiconductors and metals and have gained insight into current research topics. They not only know how to acquire scientific knowledge but are also able to place physical phenomena into a more general context while exploring links between the different topics. In addition, students have acquired personal skills such as the capability for teamwork, precise reasoning, perseverance and openmindedness.
