Annotation -
The aim of the course is to lay foundation in the key areas of X-Ray crystallography. The lectures with accompany seminaries are covering following areas on basic level: crystal symmetry, kinematic theory of diffraction, experimental techniques in powder and monocrystal diffraction, crystal structure solution of small molecules, qualitative and quantitative phase analysis, crystallographic databases, aperiodic crystals, selected physical properties of crystals.
This course is part of master's degree cycle.
