Interface Science and Cataylsis
Xiao Tong is a staff scientist in the Interface Science and Catalysis group of the Center for Functional Nanomaterials at Brookhaven National Laboratory. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Tokyo in 1997. Then, he continued research at the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) in Japan as a Basic Science Special Researcher Fellow, and at the Steacie Institute for Molecular Science, NRC, in Canada as a Visting Research Fellow. He held an Associate Specialist position at the University of California, Santa Barbara prior to joining the CNF.
Xiao Tong has been conducting research in the fields of surface science, nanoscience and model catalysis mainly utilizing UHV- Scanning Tunneling Microscopy and Photoelectron Spectroscopy. His research has focused on nano-scale fabrication, manipulation, and self-assembly of surface nanostructures, and atomic-scale characterization of geometric and electronic structures of surfaces and nanostructures, as well as nanostructure-property relationships, such as catalysis by supported nanoclusters and electron transport in surface superstructures.
