The PHI 5800 X-ray photoelectron spectrometer (XPS) is equipped with a dual source
anode (Al and Mg), a hemispherical analyzer for XPS and Auger electron spectroscopy
(AES) analysis, including elemental mapping capabilities, an electron gun source for
AES analysis, an ion sputter gun for depth profiling, and stage tilting for angle-resolved
The XPS was generously donated by the Army Research Laboratories with help from the
Department of Chemistry at Michigan Tech.
Michigan Tech offers many undergraduate and graduate courses related to materials
Some of these courses offer advanced study of surfaces.
MSE 5665 - Surface and Interface Science for Chemical and Materials Analysis
Coursework and hands-on laboratory experiences explore physical and chemical properties governing surface processes and the appropriate analysis techniques used to study interfaces and surface chemical reactions. Topics include principles of physical chemistry and materials science for understanding and applying modern surface analysis.
