Objectives You will learn the principle and practical techniques to analyze the physical and chemical properties of surfaces and thin films with spatial resolution down to atomic scale.
Subject The lecture introduces the effects and the mechanisms of:
1) electron-surface interactions
2) photon-surface interactions
3) atom/molecule-surface interactions
4) ion-surface interactions
in conjunction with their application in analysis of surface and thin films.
