This course describes the most widely used analysis methods in contemporary surface science. It presents the strengths and weaknesses of each method so that you can choose the one that provides you with the information you need. It also reviews what each method cannot give to you, as well as how to interpret the results obtained from each method.
This course is filled with examples to help you become familiar with the graphs and figures obtained from common surface analysis methods.
Each method is described in a similar way: basic principle, apparatus scheme, example results, special features, and actual device examples.
