Angaben zur Abhaltung
This module, designed for students following the AEP / KM Masters program at TUM will provide students with an introduction into the physical principles and experimental implementation of the most important spectroscopy methods used in condensed matter physics. Such methods are essential for the microscopic structural, chemical and optoelectronic characterization of crystalline and non-crystalline solids, novel interfaces and nanostructures. In particular, we will explore the fundamental physical principles and application of the following methods with examples from the labs in WSI and ZNN whenever possible. We will explore the following topics:

Imaging techniques: Electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy (SEM, TEM, STM, AFM, SNOM and KFM)
Scattering and diffraction techniques: X-Ray, Neutron and Electron (HRXRD, LEED; SAXS; SANS)
Chemical and compositional analysis (SIMS; AES, EDX; PS and UPS)
Optical spectroscopic methods (important optical components, FTIR,Raman, Ellipsometry, Transmission, Absorption, Reflection,Photoluminescence (PL), PL-excitation spectroscopy.)
Ultrafast spectroscopic methods (Ultrafast lasers, time resolved luminescence, pump-probe, four-wave mixing and other coherent spectroscopy techniques)
Nuclear and Electron Spin Resonance
Methods to probe electronic and ionic charge transport
Solid-state physics (INTRO - minimum)
After successful participation in this module the students will gain fundamental knowledge about the discussed spectroscopic techniques including their fundamental physical operating principles and their practical implementation. Moreover, through laboratory tours and practical tours / experience in the lab, students will gain knowledge into the application of such methods in state of the art research. After completion of the module, you will be in a position to apply these spectroscopic methods in your future research (e.g. in the framework of an experimental Bachelor or Master thesis)
  • English
  • German
lecture with exercises
Course will be delivered via one 2-hour lecture per week, exercises where appropriate and practical experience of the methods as they are applied in the Walter Schottky Institut.
