Klausureinsicht zur Vorlesung Nanostructured Materials am Freitag den 02. Mai in E 3.051 von 10°°-11°°

The re-exam “ Nanostructured Materials” will take place on

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014 from 13:00 – 16:00 in room BUT-C3.003.



Dear students,

although everyone passed the exam for the lecture “Nanostructured Materials”, there has to be a 2nd examination. This examination will take place in the last week of the semester break (8th to 12th of April). Room and time will be announced depending on the participating students.

In first instance this 2nd examination is for students that could not attend class in the winter semester, therefore the extra points from the homeworks do not count here. In addition the Examination and study rules for the Chemistry Master Program requires a 2nd exam that allows the students to repeat an already passed exam and enhance their degree in the following semester. In this case the enhancement of the degree is very unlikely, as the extra points from the homeworks do not count. The Examination and study rules for the AMS Master program are different therefore the 2nd exam is not for the AMS students as they all passed the 1st exam.


Thus in summary the exam is for:

  1. For students that did not take part in the 1st exam.
  2. For students in the chemistry master program or exchange students that want to enhance their degree. BUT: the additional points from the homeworks do not count for the 2nd exam!
  3. NOT for AMS students that want to enhance their degree.

If you plan to take part in this 2nd exam, please let me know at least until Monday 1st of April. If you have questions please write me an email.

Best regards,

Jörg Schuster


The exam will be on the 8th of February 2013 from 12 a.m. to 3 p.m in the Wieland and the Butenandt lecture halls.


All you need for the exam is a pen and a calculator.

You will get an equation sheet, thus you do not have to learn all equations by heart, but you should be able to recognize the desired equations.

The questions are all in English but you are also allowed to answer them in German if you prefer.
