Short description:
The lecture is intended to give an insight into modern mass spectrometry techniques. The knowledge is consolidated in the tutorial.
Theory, physical basics and instrumental techniques of mass spectrometric methods are presented in the lecture. The main topic is the wide application of mass determination of primary atomic species and elementary particles, e.g. by means of accelerators, lasers, storage rings or particle traps. But also actual methods of organics and "classical" chemical analytics are discussed, e.g. MALDI-, ESI-MS and "hyphenated techniques". The lecture is intended to be interdisciplinary and primarly directs to physicists and chemists as well as to interested students of other natural sciences.

Mandatory/advantageous previous knowledge, Target Group: This lecture is intended for both bachelor and master students.

Useful literature: please see literature page

Tutorials or exams: tutorial with homework

Course Certificate-Criterions: at least 50% of the exercises and active participation in the tutorial

ECTS points: 4 ECTS points are granted for the course certificate

Remarks: The lecture material is placed at your disposal on the eLearning platform Moodle. Master and Doctoral Theses can be written about this subject area.
