Course syllabus

The lectures covers the basic physical mechanisms of the interaction between solid matter and electromagnetic radiation, electrons and ions. Also fundamental aspects of diffraction and contrast theory are being covered. In addition the principles and usage of microprobes, electron spectroscopy techniques (AES and XPS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), light optical microscopy (LOM), and ellipsometry are described. Finally, also investigation of mechanical properties using Nanoindentation is treated. The course consists of 8 lectures and 8 laborations covering the following analysis techniques;

  • Light Optical Microscopy (LOM)
  • Ellipsometry
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
  • Electron Diffraction (ED)
  • X-ray Diffraction and X-ray Reflectivity and Diffuse Scattering (XRD + XRR)
  • Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES)
  • X-ray Photo Electron Spectroscopy (XPS)
  • Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis (EDX)
  • Nanoindentation
