Mini PhD course

Prof. Bernie Kraatz, University of Toronto, Canada.

 

This course (about 5 lecture hours in total) will provide an overview of some common methods that are used to analyze surfaces. The material will be presented at an introductory level.

 

1. A brief introduction into electrochemistry

2. Scanning probe microscopies

3. Electron microscopies

4. Secondary ion mass spectrometry

5. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy

 

 

Date: 24 April
