Nature of Matter and Instrumental Analysis

Module code: ARC7045-B

SEMESTER 1:- To develop critical awareness of the relationship between physical and chemical properties and their links to underlying atomic interactions. To provide insight into the relationships between macroscopic measurements and microscopic properties encountered in the archaeological sciences, with particular emphasis on the physical sciences. These insights will also aid the student's understanding of scientific techniques introduced in other modules. SEMESTER 2:- This semester covers the fundamental physical and chemical principles of instrumental analytical techniques, the operational requirements and interpretative methods of the techniques of importance to archaeological and forensic science applications.
