Measuring the Surface Chemistry of Nanoparticles using XPS

The Measuring the Surface Chemistry of Nanoparticales using XPS e-Learning course is a short course that will help you to:

  • Understand the fundamental principles of XPS
  • Become familiar with XPS equipment and spectra
  • Understand how XPS can be used to characterise the surface chemistry of nanoparticles
  • Perform calculations relating to shell chemistry and thickness using the spreadsheet resource that accompanies the course

This course consists of one text based lessons, and also provides an Excel spreadsheet that can be used to calculate the thickness of coatings from XPS data.
