Learning Outcomes
The scope of the course is to familiarize students with the choice of opportunities and the field of applications of modern measurement techniques. Initially, the basic principles of measurements will be presented that are independent of the type of measurement yet relate to the functional characteristics of the instrumentation employed and the methodology of designing experiments (Design of Experiments, DOE). A series of seminars will ensue on advanced measurement techniques, accompanied by demonstration of relevant instrumentation equipment. Seminars include: • Techniques on analysis and characterization, such as Raman spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, atomic absorption spectroscopy, mass spectrometry in combination with liquid chromatography, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, TGA, DSC (Differential scanning calorimetry) • 3D printing of biomaterials • Measurement of fluid-mechanics parameters through non-invasive techniques, such as μ-PIV, μ-LIF, and optical measurements of rapidly evolving phenomena. Students will get in touch with different measurement techniques and methodologies so they can apply them in a relevant work environment, link theory with practice, understand the interdisciplinarity of methodologies and applications, understand the fundamentals of measurement, become familiar with possible measurement errors, evaluation of results, etc.
General Competences
