  8. X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)

    14 Dec 2006 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): David Echevarria Torres

    The XPS (X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy) it is also known as ESCA (Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis). This technique is based on the theory of the photoelectric effect that was developed by Einstein, yet it was Dr. Siegbahn and his research group who developed the XPS technique. The …

  9. SPMW Mechanisms of atomic friction studied by friction force microscopy

    12 Dec 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ernst Meyer

    Force microscopy is a versatile instrument to investigate physical phenomena on surfaces. The first emphasis is on the study of friction on the nanometer-scale, also called nanotribology. It will be shown that atomic-scale stick-slip is relatively well understood, where the dependence on velocity …
