This laboratory course is designed to familiarize a student to modern techniques of surface science. The technique includes scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, low energy electron diffraction, auger electron spectroscopy, thermal desorption spectroscopy, and ion sputtering. Design considerations of vacuum systems will be explored. Since all techniques are on-site, this will be a interactive hands on experience.
