Identifying Chemical and Elemental Nature of Nanometer-scale Structures

The atomic level understanding of how a surface behaves as a catalyst, photo catalyst, gas sensor, or even as a mere support for other functional components begins with the accurate determination of the diverse surface stoichiometry, structures, and defects, which it accommodates. Using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) along with other experimental and theoretical tools, we have developed concrete structural and interaction models for various surface systems. In this talk, I will review some of the successful models we proposed and further present a new research opportunity for students to enhance the experimental ability to identify nature and structure of nanometer-scale structures using tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy here at Baylor University.
