Advanced thin film characterization via highly energetic radiation

This project is dedicated to thin film analysis of materials of interest deposited by the IMC group in a collaborative effort with partners from academia / industry. Primarily, selected metallic thin film samples will be subjected to ion beam and x-ray analysis to gain insights in the effect of deposition technique and parameter variation on thin film composition and functionally exploitable properties.
