This subject will discuss the principles, instrumentation and applications of synchrotron radiation, particularly in the X-ray region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Examples will be drawn from chemical and biochemical systems, and applications to advanced materials and processes

Intended learning outcomes

  • Understand the fundamentals of experimental techniques for the determination of the structure of materials and biological molecules, with emphasis on synchrotron radiation and NMR spectroscopy.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of fundamental aspects of synchrotron and NMR experimentation,
  • Demonstrate an increased knowledge and understanding of chemical science
  • Use investigative skills, critical thought and the ability to evaluate information and to analyse experimental data.

Generic skills

  • Advanced problem-solving and critical thinking skills
  • An ability to evaluate the professional literature
  • An understanding of the changing knowledge base
  • A capacity to apply concepts developed in one area to a different context
  • The ability to use conceptual models to rationalize experimental observations
