Genuine background within materials physics and specifically surface science. Have used synchrotron radiation based techniques such as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy to study chemical processen at surfaces, catalysis, electrocatalysis, and thin film growth. Often in combination with X-ray absorption spectroscopy for information about local bonding configuration and orientation.
Characterization of materials, catalysis, and surface processes. Support in planning and performing synchrotron radiation based X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (AP-XPS), and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS). Support in analysis of XPS and XAS data.
