Fundamental catalysis

We use surface-sensitive spectroscopy techniques, e.g., ambient pressure photoelectron spectroscopy (APXPS) and polarisation modulated infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (PM-IRRAS), to monitor the changes in the chemical nature of model catalysts and adsorbed species.

Water chemistry on surfaces

We use high pressure atomic force microscopy (HP-AFM) to probe water adsorption, water-induced reconstructions, and ion dissolution on surfaces.
