We are constantly developing and applying advanced nanoscale techniques for characterization of materials and phenomena at interfaces. Our expertise is mainly in scanning probe methods, including SECM, SICM and SECCM for local analysis of structure-function relationships. We are interested in spatial distributions of reactivity, temperature, surface charge and species concentrations.
In this area we collaborate with Wittstock Group, which the Momotenko Group is currently the part of.
