WK7 - In Situ Studies of Interfacial Reactivity

Dillon D. Fong, Argonne National Laboratory
Hoydoo You, Argonne National Laboratory

To agenda > Updated 4/15/07


Recently, there have been many significant advances in our ability to characterize dynamically evolving interfaces as well as a growing appreciation of the need for in situ techniques in understanding interfacial behavior. A longstanding scientific question regards the connection between atomic-scale structure and chemical dynamics at interfaces in complex environments, a critical issue for a wide range of disciplines including film deposition/etching, surface functionalization, nanopatterning, catalysis, and geochemical processes. While in situ synchrotron techniques are renown for their ability to probe buried structure in non-vacuum environments, true progress will require a complement of additional in situ tools such as SUM-frequency spectroscopy, electron microscopy, and scanning probe microscopy. This workshop will bring together researchers in a diverse array of fields to share scientific concepts and techniques focused on in situ studies of interfacial reactivity.
