The goal is the acqwuisition of methodological approach and experimental practice of the planning, realisation and analysis of experiments in solid state physics with particular emphasis on nano materials and nanotechnology. Staring from the fundamentals for the synthesis of nanostructured materials and of spectroscopic techniques, experimetns will be conductedd on the characterisation of the electronic, optical, and magnetic properties of nano materials.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student will have acquired the following skills: 1. he will be able to master the elementary vacuum technologies; 2. he will be able to fabricate nanostructured systems such as fullerenes and thin films; 3. he will be able to use spectroscopic optical characterization techniques; 4. he will be able to analyze experimentally and to characterize nanostructured systems and magnetic materials; 5. he will be able to acquire data using dedicated software; 6. he will be able to conduct a statistical analysis of the results obtained; 8. he will be able to process the results obtained according to complex physical models.
