Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Courses in solid state physics or physical chemistry or material science.

Aim

To introduce surface physics and surface processes by an integrated presentation of scientific studies, applications, theories and experiments. To demonstrate front line research in the field at chalmers and Gothenburg university.

Goal

To give a survey of concepts, methods, applications and present research issues within surface physics and processes.

Content

This course concentrates on experimental and theoretical studies of the electronic and geometric structure at surfaces and interfaces from an atomistic viewpoint. In addition, the course deals with studies of dynamics at surfaces. Processes like dissociative adsorption, surface reactions, metal-oxidation, manipulation of atoms on surfaces, heterogenous catalalysis etc. are studied. A strong emphasis on the interplay between theory and experiments is maintained in the course.

Organisation

The course is organized around lectures, project presentations, symposium and lab visits.

Literature

Lecture notes, review articles and most recent articles on "hot topics".

Examination

Active participation at lectures, two miniprojects and one maxi project presented orally and in a written form.
