Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course gives an introduction to the fundamentals of the interaction of soft matter at interfaces. We will discuss thermodynamics of interfaces, models for molecular adsorption, phase transitions at interfaces, and self-assembly of monolayers. Moreover, you will be introduced to several surface specific experimental techniques, like ellipsometry, signal enhancement with evanescent waves, and linear and nonlinear optical spectroscopy. These methods provide information about the molecular ordering and structural arrangement of soft matter at interfaces.
