Field of study resp. study course: Master of Science (Physics)
Contact hours: 3/week
Type of lesson: Lecture: Modern Mass Spectrometry (2 SWS), Tutorial with homework (1 SWS)
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.
