Course Objectives:
• Learn basic physics principles and limitations of X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) also know as ESCA (Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis)
• Learn approaches for qualitative and quantitative analysis of XPS data.
• Learn the types of problems that can be solved with XPS examples
• Perform advanced data analysis: coverage calculation, thin film thickness calculation, etc.
Course Description:
XPS is widely used to determine the chemical composition of a surface (element concentrations, chemical states, lateral and depth distributions, etc.) Nowadays XPS has become a standard technique for the characterization of solid surfaces. The course
will teach how and what information can be provided by XPS.
