CFN Colloquium Series

"Water at Interfaces: Adsorption, Reactions, Wetting"

Presented by Miguel Salmeron, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory

Tuesday, April 17, 2012, 11:00 am — Bldg. 735 - Seminar Room, 2nd Floor

The molecular nature of solid-liquid interfaces and the processes that take place there is an important and fascinating area of research. Surface chemistry and catalysis, wetting, fluid flow in pipes, electrochemistry, and batteries are areas impacted by the chemistry of interfaces. I will present results on the formation and growth of wetting films on surfaces, diffusion and reactions using Scanning Probe Microscopies (Tunneling, Force), in vacuum and in wet environments, as well as x-ray based spectroscopies (XPS, XAS). With them can obtain a detailed picture at the most fundamental level of understanding of interface phenomena. Most recently, we developed novel techniques to extend our research to the solid-liquid interface during application of electric fields, which provide fundamental information in the electrochemistry area.
