"Crystallography and Symmetry" is a subject of the second semester of the first year of the Degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, which belongs to the Basic Training Module.
This course aims at training students on knowing and learning to apply the fundamentals of point symmetry and spatial symmetry, become familiar with the world of crystals, with the most common structures of crystalline solids, with X-ray diffraction as a tool for characterizing solids, as well as with the relationship between crystallography and symmetry with other disciplines. These knowledge and skills will provide the theoretical and practical foundations necessary for the student to delve into the world of crystalline nanomaterials and their characterization by diffractometric and spectroscopic methods, in subsequent subjects of the degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
1. Modifications to the contents
In principle, the contents of the course will be fully maintained. If necessary, for reasons of force majeure, a more general presentation of the contents of the course may be chosen, which in any case will cover all the most relevant aspects of the subject.
*Teaching methodologies that are maintained
The methodologies will be maintained but will be carried out in “Online mode”, that is, using the ICT tools available to the Institution. In the event that part of the students cannot connect and follow the classes in real time, asynchronous means will be used (email, recordings of the expository sessions, more personalized tutorials ...).
*Teaching methodologies that are modified
The objective tests will be online tests that will be carried out using Moodle or equivalent tools, keeping track of them by Teams.
3. Mechanisms for personalized attention to students
Students will be tutored through the Teams platform or through corporate email.
4. Modifications in the evaluation
If all the students can follow on-line teaching activities without difficulty, students will be evaluated in the same way as the classroom teaching.
Students who cannot follow synchronous online activities will be evaluated through equivalent activities carried out asynchronously.
5. Modifications to the bibliography or webgraphy
There are no modifications in the bibliography / webgraphy
