Research Activities

Burcu's postdoctoral research at the CFN focuses on the study of adsorption and catalytic mechanisms on metal oxide surfaces using in situ and operando techniques, specifically ambient pressure XPS (APXPS) and infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy. Burcu is also developing and testing nano gas cells for solid-gas interface studies to bridge the pressure and material gap between surface science and real-life conditions using APXPS.
