Scientific interests

  • Surface catalytic reactions, dynamical processes at surfaces, mass transport phenomena induced by chemical reactions, spatio-temporal pattern formation during oscillatory surface catalytic reactions.
  • Epitaxial growth processes in ultra-thin films on metal and oxide supports.
  • Stress induced self-organization processes in ultra-thin films.
  • Characterization of the structural and electronic properties of ultra thin films, interfaces and nano-structured by means of XPS, UPS (x-ray and ultra-violet photoemission spectroscopy) ad well as x-ray photoelectron diffraction (XPD).
  • Chemical and magnetic imaging of nano-structured materials and thin films by means of electron and photoelectron spectro-microscopy, and in particular X-ray photoemission electron microscopy (XPEEM, XMCD- e XMLD-PEEM) and low energy electron microscopy (LEEM);
  • Development of instrumentation and software for LEEM and XPEEM spectroscopic imaging.
