1. Aanvangscompetenties

Bij aanvang van dit opleidingsonderdeel dient de student over de volgende competenties te beschikken:
Specifieke aanvangscompetenties voor dit opleidingonderdeel:
Elementary knowledge of quantum mechanics: Schrödinger equation, bonding and anti-bonding states, chemical bonding.Elements of solid state physics: band structure, phonons, metals, semiconductors, ¿


2. Eindcompetenties

Insight in the importance of surfaces in modern science and technology. Fundamental concepts of surfaces.Insight in the modification of the electronic structure, phonons and collective excitations at surfaces.Importance of surfaces for chemical reactions.


3. Inhoud

From a technical point of view, surfaces are very important. Each solid has a surface and this is the way it interacts with the surrounding. Surface physics deals with the chemical composition and the arrangement of atoms at a surface. Both experimental observation and theoretical study of their mechanical, electronic and chemical properties will be studied.This course concentrates on metallic and semiconductor surfaces. Fundamental concepts in surface physics will be discussed. The accent will be on basic principles, their experimental consequences and demonstration of their application on simple models. The students sill have to present an overview of the experimental techniques which are currently used in the study of surfaces.

1. Introduction
