Characterization, Monitoring and Recovery Techniques
Training students on the functionality and application of characterization techniques: electron microscopy (SEM-FIB), AFM, spectroscopy in visible, UV and Infrared Spectroscopic Ellipsometry, XRD, XRF, NMR. Advanced monitoring tools (in-line and on-line Raman, NIR, UV, and NMR) for tracking critical process parameters and critical quality attributes to enable Quality by Design (QbD). Multivariate data acquisition and data analysis tools, design of experiments, design, analysis, and control of manufacturing processes are presented. Providing expertise in designing solutions for contaminated sites, using methodology of evaluation. State-of-the-art in situ and off site remediation techniques are considered.

The attendance of the practical lessons is compulsory. Lectures are on general theoretical aspects, practical ones, as well as tutorials. Labs on selected topics on remediation techniques and problem-solving. Computer and library resources available to enforce homework reading and discussion assigments of state-of-the-art literature and case studies. Group interactions and communication skills are incentivated.
It is compulsory the attendance of the practical lessons. The students produce reports which are discussed and marked. For the final mark, the mark obtained in each module has a weighting correlated to the time that was used for its lectures. Lectures on general theoretical aspects, as well as tutorials. Labs on selected topics on remediation techniques and problem-solving. Computer and library resources available to enforce homework reading and discussion assigments of state-of-the-art literature and case studies. Group interactions and communication skills are incentivated. Evaluation designed as an individual and group project, respectively, through presentation and discussion of Seminars (S) and Final Report (FR)
