  • Lab for Surface Modification

    The mission of the Laboratory for Surface Modification is to provide a focus for research in basic and applied studies of high technology surfaces and interfaces. State of the art X-ray Photoemission Spectroscopy (XPS), but also numerous electron spectroscopy techniques are available for surface analysis. Rutherford Back-Scattering spectroscopy (RBS) is a powerful method for determining the structure and elemental composition of thin film samples. Helium Ion Microscopy (HIM) is an incomparable lens to the nanoscale world and a powerfull nanofabrication tool. Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM) for atomic scale imaging and chemical mapping. Nion UltraSTEM: Our aberration corrected Transmission Electron Microscope redefines the limits of TEM resolution and enables unprecedented spectroscopy
