Characterization of biomolecular interactions at surfaces

Goal: Introduce the main analytical techniques to characterize molecular and biomolecular interactions, nanomaterials, surfaces and interfaces will be presented by the lecturers.


  • Electronic microscopies
  • Near field microscopies (AFM,STM,SNOM,…)
  • Note that a more detailed approach of these techniques is available as an elective course.
  • Surface analysis (XPS, AES, SIMS, EXAFS…)
  • X-ray diffraction
  • Large facilities (neutrons, ESRF)
  • Optical techniques (ellipsometry, spectroscopies, SPR, OWLS,..)
  • Nanogravimetry

Prerequisites: Mécanique quantique, physique du solide, physique statistique. Electromagnétise, propagation d'ondes (guidées).
