Detailed information
Original study plan Master's programme Technical Physics 2012W
Objectives The specialized lab course on surface and nanoanalytics serves as preparation for an experimental MSc. thesis at the Center of Surface and Nanoanalytics (ZONA). For a theoretical thesis the alternative course is the "Theoretikum".

Within this lab course the candidate is requested to work 2 weeks full time at two different analysis systems at ZONA, supervised by different lecturers.

Subject The candidate should learn and become familiar with two of the following experimental techniques (in winter term 2012):
a) Scanning Auger electron spectroscopy
b) X-ray (UPS) photoelectron spectroscopy
c) Spectroscopic ellipsometry and modelling optical data
d) Nonlinear optical measurements (second harmonic, sum frequency)
e) Transmission electron microscopy and sample preparation
f) Scanning electron microscopy and foucsed ion beam sample preparation
g) Ion implantation
h) Electrochemical (in-situ) scanning tunneling microscopy.
Criteria for evaluation experimental results, level of scientific discussion and quality of report
Methods learning two experimental techniques from the list above
