Course objectives 

  • Introduce physical background to and basis of XPS
  • Illustrate both quantitative nature and chemical specificity of XPS
  • Give insight into the analysis of buried interfaces
  • Show the application of XPS (and correlative techniques) to varied fields including corrosion, semiconductors and catalysis.

Course description 

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is synonymous with the study of surface chemistry of solid surfaces. This course will provide information starting from the physical basis of XPS, through the chemical information which can be obtained from the measured spectra to its application to thin films, corrosion, semiconductors and other examples, illustrated with selected examples.  Correlation with other complementary, coincident analysis techniques, such as Raman spectroscopy, will also be shown.

Who should attend? This course is intended for students, researchers, engineers, and scientists interested in the chemistry of surfaces and buried interfaces.
