    The goalDetailed introduction into solid state chemistry, structure and properties of crystalline, polycrystalline and nanocrystalline materials. Introduction to the synthesis and instrumental methods used for the characterization of materials. Consideration of the structure, electronic configuration, the type of chemical bonding and physical and chemical properties that are important for the application of the material. Determination and presentation of the crystal structure of the material. ;
    The outcomeUsing theoretical and practical knowledge about the structure of the material to explain the physical and chemical properties that are important for their application. ; Ability to propose the optimum procedure for the synthesis of some modern materials and the selection of appropriate methods for characterization. Identification of the material and phase analysis. Critical connection of literature data and experimental results in order to design an optimal procedure for obtaining novel material.
    Contents of lecturesThe symmetry and crystal structure - the basic principles of crystallography. ; Types of chemical bonds in solids. ; Diffraction, microscopic, spectroscopic and thermal methods for characterization of solids. ; The application of crystallographic techniques for qualitative and quantitative phase analysis. ; Electrical, magnetic and optical properties. ; Synthesis of polycrystalline and nanomaterials. ;
    Contents of exercisesSynthesis and characterization of a material based on a literature review. ; Seminar ; Presentation of synthesis and characterization of one selected material from a literature review and critical consideration of the published data.
