Aim of course

Understanding of the physical and chemical properties of interfaces and surfaces on an atomic scale, surface processes on a nanoscale, nanomanipulation, surface analysis, catalysis on a nanoscale. Handouts will be available through TUWEL and/or will de distributed during the course.

Subject of course

The course provides an introduction into the basics of chemistry and physics of interfaces and surfaces on an atomic/molecular level from the point of view of materials and surface science, materials chemistry und atomic scale catalysis. Basics of chemistry and physics (bachelor-level) are necessary, however, no specialized solid state physics knowledge will be requested. The topics of the course will be discussed in close connection with actual research topics. Topics 1) Definition and general description of interfaces, microscopic and macroscopic properties of interfaces and solid state surfaces. 2) Geometric and electronic structure of surfaces. 3) Experimental studies of surfaces, major surface-sensitive analysis and microscopy methods based on photons, electrons, ions. 4) Basics of an atom-by-atom analysis and nanomanipulation. 5) Important physical/chemical surface processes: adsorption, diffusion, desorption. 6) Surface reactions on metallic and oxidic surfaces: catalysis on an atomic scale.
