He/she knows how the UV-Vis spectrum is formed.The student is able to calculate the parameters describing the absorption of light.
Prerequisites and co-requisites
Orientation to Field and Studies
1. Basics of spectrometry
2. UV-Vis-, fluorescence- and AAS-spectrophotometer operational principles
3. The spectrophotometric measurements and interpretation of results.
The student shows that he/she knows the core competencies of the objectives and can use concepts and information in a coherent manner. The student is able to do spectrometric analysis according to the instructions and prepare work reports, which contain all the required sections. The results are indicated with the correct accuracy.
The student is able to understand how the measurement conditions will affect the analysis by UV-Vis-, fluorescence- and atomic absorption spectrophotometers. The student is goal-oriented and works carefully in the laboratory. The report is clear in structure and style. The student is able to make independent conclusions and the results will include measurement uncertainty estimates.
Student is able to apply the theory in practice, and select the measurement conditions for the analysis by UV-Vis-, fluorescence- and atomic absorption spectrophotometers. He/she works independently, on his/her own initiative and is goal-oriented. He/she is able to plan and schedule the work in a reasonable way. The language used in the report and discussion of the results is excellent.
