Spectroscopy in Nanoscale

when 15 August 2022 - 19 August 2022
language English
duration 1 week
credits 2 EC

In the course, the working principle of scanning probe near field optical microscope (Scattering-type SNOM) for nanoscale material characterization is introduced. The theoretical basis for the techniques super-resolution imaging and spectroscopy capabilities in different wavelengths ranges are discussed. Case studies introduced range from all disciplines of life science (biology, chemistry and physics). The course contains laboratory work as well.
