Joachim Schnadt professor at Lund University will propose a seminar that will be given at INSP, room 22-23-317, for Nanomat students entitled:
Electron spectroscopies going real: new tools for the in situ and real time investigation of chemical reactions at surfaces
Abstract : For some decades now, electron spectroscopy methods have been among the most important techniques for the elucidation of atomic-scale structure of surfaces and their properties towaards adsoprtion of molecules. Recently, new technical developments, for example implemented at both the french synchrotron radiation facility SOLEIL and its swedish counterpart MAX IV Laboratory, have opened the door towards the use of these electron spectroscopies under true chemical reaction conditions. Joachim Schnadt will discuss how this is possible and illustrate what is gained from the development with recent examples from catalysis and oxide growth.
