Annotation -
The aim of this course is to give the students an understanding of the basic principles of photophysical and photochemical processes and their selected applications. It is assumed that students have knowledge on structure and reactivity of molecules within the scope of related chapters in a standard physico-chemical textbook, e.g., P. W. Atkins: Physical Chemistry. If at least one student from abroad (ERASMUS) is participating in the course, lectures are being delivered in English in a standard course mode.

Requirements to the exam - Czech

Zkouška se skládá z části písemné a ústní. Písemná část zahrnuje vypracování seminární práce z oblasti fotochemie na zvolené téma (vybrané po dohodě s přednášejícím) v rozsahu 6-10 stránek (včetně citací a příp. obrázků). Ústní část zkoušky zahrnuje dvě otázky v rámci sylabu.

The exam consists of a written and an oral part. The written part includes the elaboration of a seminar paper on selected topic in photochemistry (a typical length is of 6-10 pages including references and figures). The oral part of the exam includes two questions within the syllabus.
