The student has concluded succesfully the introductory courses of physics and knows what kind of information microscopy can deliver to increase the knowledge in biology.
2. Objectives (expected learning outcomes)
The student knows the possibilities and the limits of light- and electron microscopical methods and has notions of new recent methods like scanning probe microscopy. The student also knows the basic methods of preparation of living matter and has hands-on experience with one or several microscopy techniques.
3. Course content
Theoretical part: preparation techniques and the physics behind the often used methods; these include light and electron microscopy and scanning probe methods like AFM and SNOM.
Practical part: the student works out a limited project using one or several methods.
4. Teaching method
Direct contact: Lectures
Personal work: Exercises
5. Assessment method
Continuous assessment: ExercisesAssignments
6. Compulsory reading – study material
For the theoretical basis of light microscopy, course notes are published by the teacher (J. Dirckx)
7. Recommended reading - study material
When necessary, all teachers will give extra explanation/information.
