Surface Analysis with X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)
Duration2 hours (3 x 15 minute offline sessions & 1 hour live session for summary, exercise, demo and Q&A)
Team Researcher Academy
This online course is run by the Researcher Academy
The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. Semester 1 courses will be available for booking from the second week of October and Semester 2 courses from the second week of February.
Target Audience:PGRs and ECRs in the faculties of Eng, M&HS and Sci
This course provides an introduction to the surface chemical characterisation technique X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and is intended for novice users of this instrumentation.
The course will cover:
Introduction to XPS theory and instrumentation (basics and capabilities)
Example analysis of XPS data for ‘real’ samples.
Familiarisation with the XPS facilities available at the nmRC and elsewhere
Theoretical basis for techniques based on XPS
Functionality of specific instrumentation
Practical applications of XPS
