Module title: Nano/Surface Physics II: Electronic Structure (NS2)

Module convenor: Dr. Wolfgang Theis (Birmingham)

.

Topics:
Electronic states and band structure in 3D crystals
Photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES)
Surface states, spin-polarized electronic states; (Scanning tunnelling spectroscopy)
Quantum well states, magic island heights, magnetic thin film systems

Semiconductor quantum dots, clusters as "artificial atoms"
Bulk and surface plasmons

.

Delivery:
Handouts of the slides will be available here before the individual lecture. In the lecture, a tablet PC will be used to annotate these slides and to write on additionally inserted empty slides. This extended set of slides with the captured writing will be made available here after the lecture.
