Interdisciplinary graduate course winter term 2011/12


This course is part of the activities of the Interdisciplinary Center for Interface-Controlled Processes (IZ-ICP). It aims at graduate students to enhance their knowledge in fundamental techniques used in surface and interface science and related fields. This includes both experimental and theoretical methods. The lecture should bring together students from different disciplines, all focusing on surface/interface science in general. The lecturers will give their lectures in blocks of 2-3 units, an overview of the planned schedule will be given in the first lecture. The course extends over a total of four terms.
