Aims
After completion of the course, the student is expected to:  
 
  • understand the basic theory behind light or electron microscopy, and the more detailed theory of one chosen technique.
  • be able to plan and perform a small experimental study using light and electron microscopes
Content
“Topics in Light and Electron Microscopy” consists of two independent master courses of 4.5 EC (NS-EX417M) and 3 EC (NS-EX419M), respectively, which aim to familiarize students of natural sciences and life sciences with the theory behind and the application of modern microscopes. The first course, “Physics of Light and Electron Microscopy” will convey the theoretical basis on which modern light and electron microscopy is based, while the second course “Applications of Light and Electron Microscopy” will guide the students in the planning and performing of an experiment, requiring them to acquire and apply theoretical knowledge about a light or electron microscopy technique, and explain their results to their fellow students.

location: Utrecht University
time: January 2019 (weeks 2-4; experimental work will be scheduled according to availability of students and equipment; required presence in week 4 for final presentations); students will work in groups of 2 or 3 on a project. Deadline for submission of report: end of week 5.
application: via the OSIRIS system; for students from outside Utrecht, through one of the coordinators; due to limited experimental resources, this course has room for at most 20 students; students who actively participate in “Physics of Light and Electron Microscopy (NS-EX-417M) will be given preferred access.
examination: report (2500 words; approximately 12 pages including figures and references) by the end of week 5 (60%), presentation of their results to their peers (week 4, 30%), preparation for and professional behaviour during experiments (10%).
requirements: it is assumed that students possess basic knowledge of optics and (light)microscopy at the beginning of the course.
