Objective

The course will introduce the participants to state-of-art electrochemical and optical microsensor and imaging techniques and to their application in the environmental sciences.

The participants will get a broad overview of techniques and applications during 2-3 days of intensive lecturing, followed up by practical laboratory exercises and demonstrations of sensor construction, test and calibration. The participants conduct an experimental project over 4-5 days under expert supervision.

The course is evaluated via participant presentations and discussion of project results on the last full day of the course. The participants will be asked to present their own research via short presentations during the course.

Guest teachers

Prof. Ingo Klimant (TU Graz); Prof. Peter J. Ralph (Univ. Technol. Sydney), Assoc. Prof. Helle Ploug (Göteborg Univ.) More information will be available soon at: www.mbl.ku.dk/mkuhl/microsensor2012. (see also previous course site)
