This course will cover the subject of chemical analysis of materials. Chemical analysis of materials is wherein the composition and chemical information of various materials and properties are probed and measured. This course will focus specifically on different spectroscopic analytical techniques of chemical analysis of materials. It will cover surface chemical analysis to bulk chemical analysis of materials.
- Graduate Certificate in Materials Characterization
- FlexiMasters in Materials Characterization
At the end of the course, learners are able to:
1. Describe the working principles of XRF & XPS;
2. Analyze data acquired from each of the spectroscopic techniques;
3. Recommend suitable techniques for evaluating material properties with clear justifications, and
4. Integrate information from multiple datasets to make deductions about material properties.
- Introduction to principles of XRF
