Project Details


Background Part of the research focus in the synchrotron radiation studies group in MSD is understanding the behavior of oxide surfaces in reactive environments with the aid of in situ synchrotron techniques. We have begun a collaboration with Prof. Laurence Marks, an expert in oxide surface behavior and professor in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at Northwestern University. Our aim to make fundamental discoveries in understanding and enhancing the catalytic properties of complex oxide surfaces. This subcontract is to fund two individuals, Say Young Cook and Tassie Andersen, who will be jointly supervised by Dr. Dillon Fong at Argonne and Prof. Laurence Marks at Northwestern. The individuals will focus on researching complex oxide surfaces in reactive environments. Tasks The tasks are for the individuals to engage in forefront research of complex oxide surfaces in reactive environments. The experimental program will be carried out primarily at ANL. Deliverables The deliverables will be joint publications and the exchange of information from different analytical techniques.
