Information for research students about course offerings
Contact the examiner / course coordinator for information.
Content and learning outcomes
Nanoparticles – Synthesis and applications (in general)
Interactions between ionizing radiation and matter
Basic radiation chemistry
Radiation chemistry of water
The radiation chemical toolbox
Radiation induced synthesis of organic nanoparticles
Radiation induced synthesis of metallic nanoparticles
Radiation induced synthesis of metal oxide nanoparticles
Intended learning outcomes
After completed the course the student will be able:
- To describe fundamental radiation chemistry in water, how to control radiation-induced reactions and how radiation chemistry can be used to synthesize organic and inorganic nanoparticles. (TEN1).
- To orally and in written form account for how chemical composition, size and shape can be controlled in radiation induced synthesis of a specific nanoparticle. (PRO1).
The course consists of lectures16 h, seminars 4 h, written exam 4 h and independent work 40 h (studies and project)
Literature and preparations
Eligible for studies at the third-cycle level.
Handouts (research papers).
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- PRO1 - Project, 1.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Written exam, 2.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Grading criteria are specified in the course PM.
Other requirements for final grade
Learning outcomes completely fulfilled (PRO1, 1 ECTS, TEN1, 2 ECTS).
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
