    OVERVIEW

    Atomic Spectrometry and Mass Spectrometry are two fundamental classes of analytical methods, which are widely used in many fields, from the study of the environment to the control of food quality, from medical research to the production of innovative materials, from the preservation of cultural heritage to forensic investigations. In this course, the main atomic and mass spectrometry methods are presented in their theoretical, performance and application aspects.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Theoretical knowledge of the spectroscopic methods for elemental analysis and of the mass spectrometry techniques

    TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures and bibliographic/laboratory work (for Chemical Sciences only). Slides and further educational material (articles, video,…) available on aulaweb

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Oral examination, with questions related to the content of the course, including class and laboratory experiences. Students are required to demonstrate their achievement of the learning outcomes, through oral presentation and graphical schemes.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The oral examination is performed by two professors and it is about 40-min long. During the examination, the student answers to questions related to the content of the course. The commission is able to evaluate if the learning outcomes have been achieved. If not, the student is asked to study more thoroughly and/or take benefit from further explanations by teachers.
