Surface analysis (2011)

Publicerad: 18 augusti 2011

The course introduces the most common surface analysis techniques in the field of tribology.

After completion of the course the student should be able to:

- explain the physical principle and describe the performance (such as room resolution and sensitivity) for the included methods,

- describe the interaction between radiation (electrons, ions, X-rays) and the sample surface including the origin of the detected signal,

- describe the design of the most important instruments,

- compare techniques and methods regarding performance and practical use,

- choose appropriate methods to solve a specific problem.
