About the lecture

Time and place

Tue 9.30-11.45

conference room in the Nano-Institute Munich at Königinstr. 10

 Semester start

The first lecture will start at 9:30 on Tuesday, 15th October 2019. There will be no tutorials on that day. In the following weeks, the lectures will also start at 9:30. The tutorials are planned from 8:30 till 9:30, but we discuss the possibility of a second tutorial after the lecture.

The lecture will be in the conference room in the Nano-Institute Munich at Königinstr. 10 on the 1st floor (street entrance level). The tutorials will be in the same building.

Exam: 4th February 2020, 9:00, Nano Institute Munich, Conference room on the 1st floor.

The results of the exam and the overall grades are available, anonymized by the ID number. If any student has a question about the exam sheet, please enquire about the exam by phone (089 2180 1356) or by email.

Following the decision by the Department to cease any teaching actrivities, the second exam (Wiederholungsklausur), planned previously for Tuesday, 17th March 2020 at 9:00 has been cancelled. We will inform about any possible future dates on this page. To assess a potential interest in the second exam, any student intending to take the second exam is asked to write a short email to Dr. Jacek Stolarczyk enlisting for the exam.
