!!! This course is taught in English for Erasmus students !!!

This course is specialized in the presentation of different topics of modern analytical spectrometry. It covers progress in both molecular and atomic spectrometry. Individual topics are characterized in the syllabus. All lectures are given in English. Attendance at these lectures assumes a basic knowledge of analytical spectrometric methods (subjects MC230P04N or its equivalents and MC230P19). This course is primarily recommended for the pre-gradual, doctoral students and Erasmus students.
