Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the preparation and characterisation of surfaces of solids, as well as instruments for surface spectroscopy and analysis, and to explain different methods for the analysis of the chemical composition, geometric and electronic structures.

Subject of course

Preparation and characterization of surfaces of solids, instruments for spectroscopy and analysis of surfaces. Methods for chemical analysis (XPS, AES, SIMS, ISS, TDS), determination of the geometrical structure (STM/AFM, FIM, LEED) and investigation of the electronic structure (UPS, IPES, NEXAFS).

Teaching methods

Presentation of the methods as well as examples from research work in the lecture. Lecture notes (German, slides in English) and further supporting material such as video animations of the underlying physics.

Mode of examination

Oral

Additional information

Introduction and first lecture: Tue March 5th 2024, 10:00.

Lectures 10:00–12:00 (with a short break), till early June. No lecture on March 19th!

In 2024, the course will be probably presented in English. The slides will be in English and available for download; there are also lecture notes in German.
