Objectives The major objective for this course is to deepen the understanding for the interactions between electrons and the materials. Especially electron microscopy and electron spectroscopy technqiues are highlighted and used for material analysis.

In addition, a lab session on the JEOL SEM will be organized, where each student can work with hands on with given samples or his/her own samples.

Necessary (examined) Prerequisites:
Grundlagen III (Optics) and Grundlagen IV (Quantum Mechanics)
Theory II (Quantum Mechanics)
Solid State Physics

Subject a) a repetition of Fourier optics and the diffraction limit
b) Interaction of electrons with Matter (secondary, backscattered, Auger e-)
c) Electron optics for a scanning electron microscopes and a transmission electron microscope
d) Electron Sources, detectors and spectrometers
e) Types of and applications for scanning electron microscopes
f) Types of and applications for transmission electron microscopes. g) Analytical techniques for Chemistry: (Auger, X-ray Analysis, XPS, EBIC, CL)
h) Crystal structure analysis with electrons (EBSD)
Criteria for evaluation Oral exam testing the understanding of the concepts of electron microscopy and electron spectroscopy, as well as their application in SEM and TEM.
Methods Teaching is done by
deriving important formulas and concepts on the blackboard
as well as powerpoint presentation.

In addition, a lab session on the JEOL SEM will be organized, where each student can work with hands on with given samples or his/her own samples.
