1) Different ways of arrangement of building particles in solids (crystals, quasicrystals, nanocrystals, amorphous compounds, glasses, liquid crystals)

2) Ideal crystal, lattice, lattice points, lattice parameters

3) Crystal systems accordnig relative value of lattice parameters, Bravais cells

4) Point symmetry, symmetry elements and operations, point groups

5) Crystal lattice symmetry (elements and symmetry operations with translation, space groups)

6) Interaction of X-rays with crystal

7) Ewald construction

8) Diffraction methods

9) Powder diffraction and its use

10) Single crystal diffraction methods and its use

11) Crystal structure determination

The lecture is focused on the bases of crystallography and explanation of experimental methods realized both on single crystal and polycrystalline samples
