- The examination only checks if you have attended the lectures.» (No, not at all)
- The exam was a bit too easy.» (To some extent)
- The exam was really alike the old ones. But I think a good thing would have been to have some kind of project or dugga or so, as a complement to the home works.» (To some extent)
- The exam was not very hard but you had to understand everything in the course in order to approve. Well balanced.» (Yes, definitely)

- Mikael Käll didn"t seem interested whatsoever regarding teaching the course. Unprepared at many times and some of the hand in "problems" felt like he wanted us to do some of his work. Especially when we were asked to write an exam question with answer... Eva at least seemed a bit interested in giving the course but was at times poorly prepared for the lectures.» (Small extent)
- The SPM part was good. The optics was okay but the slides weren"t really educational. The last part about electron microscopy was a bit confusing. The lecturer"s black board technique was really bad. It was unstructred and confusing.» (Some extent)
- The lectures with Eva was really helping, but the ones with Mikael was rather an obstacle.» (Some extent)
- The teaching in the first part of the course was somewhat unstructured and hard to follow.» (Some extent)
- The lectures gave the knowledge needed to pass the exam and the homework but that was only because the exam was written to see if you attended the lectures. I gained more knowledge from wikipedia.» (Some extent)
- The lectures that was given by Mikael was a bit to caotic. Since he jumped some slides due to inefficient use of time. Do not go through the handin during the lecture! He has a good lecture technique, but it was almost impossible to rember what was important due to the jumps. Ewa needs to talk a bit higher.» (Some extent)
- The electron microscopy part and the SPM part were fine, but the lectures on optical microscop did not give anything if attended.» (Some extent)
- I think that both lecturers focused on the wrong things. Maybe because they didn"t know which prequisities we had. But sometimes they spent a lot of time explaining things I already knew, just to skip the hard stuff really quickly.» (Some extent)
- The laborations were grate, but the lectures could have been more well prepared and more advanced. » (Large extent)
- Mikael: Your lectures need to much better prepared. Plan how you dispose of the time, talking half the lecture about Nobel laureates doesn"t really help us in understanding optical microscopy.» (Large extent)
- SEM/TEM lectures were good. Optical lectures had good slides, but lectures were a bit disorganized and spent lots of time on the sometimes silly hand ins.» (Great extent)

- I would have perfered to have a booklet containing the relevant parts of the course. As it was, course literature was restricted to powerpoint slides only.» (Small extent)
- There was not really any good literature. » (Small extent)
- A course book is needed so we can have reference material.» (Small extent)
- The review articles for the optical microscopy part was really bad, there should be some other kind of material if the lectures are gonna be performed in that way.» (Small extent)
- Didn"t have the books.» (Small extent)
- Wikipedia is the shit!» (Some extent)
- The SPM part was good and the optics was decent. There was no way I were going to buy the books on SEM and TEM just for 2 weeks in one course. Seeing as these methods appear in multiple courses I would recommend you to write a booklet on these techniques with the necessary aspects covered. This booklet could then be used in all of these courses.» (Some extent)
- In the electron microscopy part I have no complaints. The optical microscopy part could be clearer and more well defined when it comes to background material.» (Some extent)
- The lab PM and the lecture notes of Eva was very helpful.» (Some extent)
- Lab material very useful. Relevant information.» (Some extent)
- The course needs to have litterature that is affordable or available as e-books. Proper course liiterature is of great value in the learning process. » (Some extent)
- I didn"t buy any book. I didn"t need to. » (Some extent)
- Slides were good. Article on superresolution good. Lab PMs good. Optical microscopy notes good but not necessary, useful as a reference.» (Large extent)
- expecially lab PMs» (Large extent)
- Some outdated lab-pms but overall ok. Also, Eva Olsson"s lectures could be put online if you miss lectures. (For me, I had other lectures at the same time for instance).» (Large extent)

- There were no homepage at start of the course. And the lab submit were done on a pice of paper verry badly administrated. » (Very badly)
- When the homepage EVENTUALLY was running, it was a little bit unclear how the registration of the labs was about to be carried out. The handouts worked well.» (Very badly)
- The administrations of the web page was really bad, and the administration about the lab times should have been handled much better. » (Very badly)
- The course web site has to be up and running prior to the course start. Signing up for the AFM and optical microscopy labs was a messy business that could have been avoided with a working web site. Also, there is no reason to have the course material protected behind a login. The course material should be made available prior to the course start. This would make it easier to asses the course prior to selecting it at the beginning of term.» (Very badly)
- The webpage toke forever before it was up. I found no where on the webpage or in the course-pm what the names of the teachers were or how to contact them however two of the laboratory assistants had ther names listed. The handouts were not structured. Meaning the some papers you got twice and many of the papers were not on the webpage. The women teacher asked how many were phd students and said that she would make sure they had a seat at the exam, this was of course not the case. Information in general was poor.» (Very badly)
- We couldn"t access the course page until week 2! Some of our handins didn"t seam to have a connection to the course. We need to be able to sign up to the labs without running, as the first day. Make the course page work during the hole course!» (Very badly)
- There were no course PM the first week, the lab-pms were handed out way to late and the "sign-up" sheets for the lab sessions were poorly executed.» (Very badly)
- How come it took nearly two weeks before we even had a course page in the student"s portal? We missed the first lab sessions since there was no course page so the students could not register for the sessions. Then when they (Eva and Mikael) attended the lectures they asked us to sign up on papers, which increased the entropy significantly so to speak.» (Very badly)
- The course homepage should exist when the course starts, no matter if the examinators are on conference or not! The lab booking for the first two labs was a catastrophy.» (Very badly)
- The beginning of the course was a chaos that turned into something better.» (Rather badly)
- It is not acceptable that the course homepage is delayed like this! The lecturers lack respect of the time of the students. If you go to a conference you MUST prepare everything in advance!» (Rather badly)
- I vill ha slidesen i förväg så att jag kan skriva ut dem och anteckna på dem med pilar och små kommentarer. Det räcker med ett dygn i förväg.» (Rather badly)
- Problems with the web page not being available at the start of the course. This was really bad and reflects negatively on the responsible lecturers and the course as a whole. » (Rather well)
- The only thing that was bad (that comes to mind) was that the course page was not available until week 2.» (Rather well)

- It was very easy to find Eva before the examination, but nearly impossible to find Michael.» (Rather poor)
- Eva: Very good with scheduled time for questions!» (Rather good)
- The question time with Eva was really good. It was nice that it was so close to the exam. Do that for both teachers next year, it was a really good idea!» (Rather good)

- With an engineering physics background the course was merely a repetition of known material.» (Too low)
- The lecturers taught the same basics about microscopes over and over again. It seems like they haven"t spoken to each other when they planned for the course. Most of the course is already covered in the engineering physics bachelor program. Mere one or two new techniques were covered. Nice to be able to perform the lab session and not only observe PhD students perform the labs. » (Too low)
- Det kunde vara svårt att hinna göra läxorna när vi hade dem från måndag till torsdag eller torsdag till måndag. Mikael kunde ha sagt att läxorna var frivilliga. Jag trodde de var obligatoriska och var t.ex. tvungen att göra läxa en helg när jag var bortrest.» (Adequate)
- The labs were really good. Some handins were also good connection to the course, others just took time and I didn"t understand why they were there. » (Adequate)

- The connection and correlation between the two different parts of the course was weak at best. Mikael Käll has to organise himself and start preparing his lectures. He also needs to decide what to teach and not only advertise himself.» (Poor)
- To many problems in the begining. Not understanding what was important during Mikaels lectures. Not hearing Eva, during here lectures (here i could however read my notes afterwards)» (Poor)
- Poor administration, bad lectures, uninteresting homeworks» (Poor)
- I did get the feeling that none of the examinators really liked having the course.» (Poor)
- So, it was a course that gave a good overview of the subject, but it didn"t quite feel like master"s level...» (Adequate)
- The course is wonderful every experimental physicist should read it. The labs are awesome. The optical microscopy teacher was a very good lecturer. The guy presenting STEM was also good however he seams a lite nervous it will probably pass. The female teacher was knowing but could not give lectures. The only thing she ever did was to slowly rewright her notes on the black board. If she had presented her notes on the web no one would attend the lectures.» (Adequate)
- Roligt med labbarna» (Adequate)
- A bit too simplistic at times. » (Good)
- It is a very relevant and useful course. I have learnt a lot of useful things. But the teachers lack respect of the students, I get this feeling at least. A course homepage needs to be up well before the coiurse starts! » (Good)
- Almost excellent :)» (Good)
- Good overview of many Imaging techniques being used.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Labs!»
- The laborations»
- Electron microscopy lectures. Slides for optical are very good for repetition before exam.»
- The labs»
- Labs»
- Eva»
- the labs»
- Teaching from different professors made the course more "dynamic" and ensure that every topic is explained by a teacher who is competent in that area.»
- labs labs labs»
- Evas läxor. De var väldigt genomtänkta och behandlade det hon pratat om under senaste föreläsningarna.»
- The labs! They gave a good insight. Mabey have smaller groups.»
- The lecturers.»
- Lab sessions where good, but that is about it»
- the homework was great!»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The course content on optical microscopy, more details so that we know more about some methods instead of little about many. The course content on SPM can include a lot more. We can learn about techniques to use, compare the results from different techniques and a lot more. »
- Write a booklet on electron microscopy and try to structure the lectures a bit better.»
- Optical Lab was awful. The supervisor just disappeared. I still learned some. It was useful to think of the optical lab when studying for exam! SEM lab was just a repetition from F3 solid state. SEM and TEM labs are a bit boring. I was lucky to do the semlab with just 1 other student, giving much time to play with the microscope.»
- The goals of the corse and the administration »
- Please make sure to provide proper study materials since the text book was literally un-accessible by students since there are 2 copies in the library and both were taken throught the quarter so getting the related text book was close to impossible.»
- The preparation of Mikael»
- There should be only one examiner and main teacher in one course. Perhaps the course would benefit from being split in two separate courses?»
- more interesting assignments for SEM,TEM»
- The first part of optical microscopy was a bit confusing. Maybe a better introduction should be made in order to avoid some initial difficultes getting into the subject»
- The administration of the course»
- Mikaels läxor! Det var som att hittade på dem på vägen till föreläsningen. Dessutom skulle jag vilja ha svar på Evas läxor. Det är ju ingen idé att göra dem om man inte vet om man svarar rätt. På tentan kom ju en av läxorna rakt av - och eftersom vi inte fått reda på om vi svarat rätt på läxan så har vi ju ingen aning om vi svarat rätt på tentan heller. Och Eva sa ju att vi inte fick samarbeta med att göra läxorna, så men vet ju inte om man svarat riktigt. Och Mikael använde slides - de skulle jag verkligen vilja att han lägger upp på hemsidan ett dygn i förväg så att man kan skriva ut dem och anteckna på dem. Tack»
- The course homepage. It has to work when we start studying the course. More efficient use of lecture time from Mikael. He has important things to teach, don"t get stuck on the handins. He is also good at answering questions, use that more!»
- I think some feedback to the homework would be of great value when finding out if there are any misunderstandings. If I have misunderstood something I would like to have a chance of correcting that before the course i finished. +Mentioned above about course litterature.»
- The lectures (optical microscopy). This year they were very unbalanced, a lot of time were spent demonstrating simple stuff and homeworks everyone had already done. This were often done at the expense of the rest of the material.»
- it would be nice to have slides for the second part. we could have gone faster and maybe covered more topics if there were slides instead of copying what was written on the blackboard. also it would be helpful to get feedback on the hw for the second part. maybe the answers could be discussed in the beginning of the next class.»
- The tutors need to talk to each other and prepare themselves for each lecture and not hoping it will all work out during the lecture. »
- More thought through lectures especially on the first part of the coarse. Some of the homework assignments insulted our intelligence.»
- Maybe change the SEM-lab a bit, since it is identical to what you do in year three of teknisk fysik.»
- The difficulty of the course should be raised. Since most of the participants have a background in physics, some of the topics (e.g. basic optics) should be replaced by a more in-depth study.»

16. Additional comments

- I thought it was going to be boring, and I had to take the course. In the end I really enjoyed it! There is room for improvement, but it was much better than what I thought it would be.»
- If you have studied engineering physics at Chalmers this corse is no big deal. The goals are to low and the tempo is also to low. Atomst everything is repetition on a more basically level than we know since earlier courses. Something needs to be done until next year or the course shouldn"t be semi-compulsory. »
- Some administrative adjustments and the course will be super.»
- The labs were good, but the SEM lab was identical to the one we did in solid state physics in the third year. I think that I could"ve learned a lot more in the course than I did so I"m disappointed!»
