Thin Oxide Films on Metal Supports

Preparation of Oxide Films on Metal Supports

  • Developing preparation schemes for numerous ionic and covalently bound oxides of 1-100 monolayer thickness
  • Tailoring film quality and intrinsic properties via
    • Crystallographic nature of supporting metal surface
    • Growth conditions, for instance the oxygen chemical potential
    • Film thickness
    • Insertion of dopants and impurities
  • Exploring surface morphology, electronic properties and defect structure (point and line defects) of the oxide films by STM
