The lecture gives an overview of experimental methods suitable for the investigation of various types of nanostructures (semiconductor and metallic nanostructures, surfaces and thin layers, metallic and dielectric nanoparticles) with the emphasis to the study of morphology, electron and phonon properties. In addition to the description of the methods, the lecture will formulate physical principles of the methods and a survey of recent experimental results. The content of the lecture will be modified accord-ing to subjects of the PhD theses of the participants.

Zkouška se sestává z písemné a ústní části. Písemná část spočívá ve vyřešení velmi snadného problému, který nevyžaduje dlouhé počítání (max. 30 min). Ústní část navazuje na řešení zmíněného problému a trvá max. 45 min. Známka zkoušky se stanoví ze souhrnného hodnocení písemné a ústní části. Požadavky zkoušky odpovídají skutečně odpřednášené části sylabu.
