Surface Scattering with Electronically Modified Surfaces

The objective of the collaborative research project with Igor Rahinov from the Open University in Tel Aviv is to conduct a comprehensive series of experiments on nanostructured surfaces. We carry out state-to-state molecular beam surface scattering experiment using solid-state samples that are realistic models for modern catalysts. These experiments allow us to disentangle the influence of electron-hole pairs excitation from other mechanisms of energy dissipation, yielding quantitative evaluation of the EHP-V coupling role in heterogeneous catalysis.

While surface preparation is carried out in Tel Aviv using CVD methods, molecular beam surface scattering is performed at the IPC in Göttingen.
