The purpose of the course is to acquaint students in physics, chemistry, materials
science and electrical engineering with the static and dynamic behavior of clean
and adsorbate-covered solid surfaces and interfaces from both theoretical and
experimental points of view. In particular, the role of modern surface
spectroscopies to study these aspects will be taught. Topics include geometrical
structure, surface morphology, electronic structure, surface composition and
dynamics (adsorption, scattering, vibrations). Surfaces of metals, oxides and
semiconductors will be considered.
