Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The aim of the course is to discuss the experimental methods suited fot the study of fundamental structural, morphologic and electronic properties of surfaces and interfaces of crystalline solids. The latter represent examples of low-dimensional systems, where the symmetry reduction may induce novel and exotic properties with respect to those that can be observed inside the bulk of a solid. Surface sensitive techniques are therefore needed to study the physical mechanisms acting at the low dimensional scales: some of the most widely employed methods will be presented in details.
