Description

Master's Programme in Materials Research is responsible for the course.

Module where the course belong to:

  • MATR300 Advanced Studies in Materials Research.
    Optional for:
    1. Study Track in Experimental Materials Physics
    2. Study Track in Inorganic Materials Chemistry

The course is available to students from other degree programmes.

No prior in-depth learning is required, but the following course would provide useful background information: MATR316 Nuclear Physics I.

If you are interested in studying further the topic the course MATR313 Elemental Analysis by Ion Beams is recommended.

Obtain an outlook on particle detection based ion beam characterization techniques.

Can be taken in the early or later stages of studies.

Given every second year (even years) in the spring term.

1. Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (RBS)

  • Fundamentals
  • Exercises (solved during lectures)
  • Examples of use, heavy ion backscattering
  • Spectrum analysis, use of simulation codes
  • Practical demo including spectrum analysis

2. Ion Channeling

  • Fundamentals
  • Exercises
  • Practical demo

3. Elastic Recoil Detection Analysis (ERDA)

  • Fundamentals
  • Exercises
  • Use of ERDA
  • Spectrum analysis, use of simulation codes
  • Practical demo including spectrum analysis

Lecture notes.

Supplementary reading: Handbook of Modern Ion Beam Materials Analysis, Editors Y. Wang and M. Nastasi, MRS, 2009.

Weekly lectures including several exercises (individual work). Practical demonstrations of the covered techniques comprising data analysis as individual work (with short report).

The final grade is based on an examination.

Lectures, exercises, method demonstrations with data analysis reports, and final examination.
