529-0135-00LCook and Look: Watching Functional Materials in SituW3 KP3GM. Nachtegaal, D. Ferri, O. Safonova, T. Schmidt
KurzbeschreibungHands-on course on in situ spectroscopies (x-ray, infrared, Raman) and x-ray diffraction for understanding the structure of functional materials.
LernzielThorough understanding of available state-of-the-art spectroscopies for the characterization of the structure of functional materials under in situ conditions.
Problem solving strategies and reporting in a scientific format.
To learn the basics of spectroscopic data analysis.
InhaltThis course will introduce state-of-the art synchrotron techniques (x-ray absorption and emission spectroscopies, x-ray diffraction) as well as complementary infrared and Raman spectroscopies for the characterization of functional materials, such as catalysts, under operating (in situ) conditions. On the ‘cook’ days, each technique will be introduced by a lecture, after which samples will be ‘cooked’ (sample preparation, building in situ setup, and measurement). This will be followed by a ‘look’ day where the collected data will be analyzed. Principles of x-ray data treatment, including Fourier transformation, will be introduced.
SkriptA course manual with in depth background information will be distributed before the course.
LiteraturWill be suggested in the course manual and made available during the course.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThe course will take place at the Swiss Light Source, at the Paul Scherrer Institut. Students will be housed for several nights in the guest house. You are required to contact the organizers upon registration since beamtime and housing has to be reserved well in advance.

363-1008-00LPublic EconomicsW3 KP2VM. Köthenbürger, G. Loumeau
KurzbeschreibungPublic Economics analyses the role of the government in the economy. In this course we will discuss justifications for and the design of public policy as well as its consequences on market outcomes. Issues related to public goods, taxation, in particular the effects of tax policy on labor supply, entrepreneurship and innovation will be emphasized.
LernzielThe primary goal of the course is to familiarize students with the central concepts and principles of public economics. The course aims at providing a good understanding of theoretical work and how it may be applied to actual policy problems. Students will get a good overview of recent key contributions in the field and how these relate to empirical observations.
