Between July 8 and July 13, Elisa attended the 16th International Symposium on Small Clusters and Inorganic Nanoparticles (ISSPIC XVI) in Leuven, Belgium.
The ISSPIC conference, which started in 1976, has evolved into an event of global relevance for the presentation and discussion of the latest scientific developments in the fields of atomic and molecular clusters, nanoparticles and nanostructures. Thefocus of the conference, which this year was held at the Catholic University of Leuven, was the fundamental science of finite size effects, and the possibility of controlling the properties of materials at the nanometer scale.
At the conference, Elisa presented a poster by the title "The interaction of oxygen with Rh nanoclusters supported on epitaxial graphene" 





 

After a three months period of training, the students of the Condensed Matter Laboratory Course -Master’s Degree Course in Physics of the University of Trieste- have completed the experimental activities in the lab. They performed experiments on the growth of graphene on transition metal surfaces. The two main techniques which were employed for the characterization of the systems were Low Energy Electron Diffraction and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy.  After the training period in the Laboratory, the undergraduates have been involved in a beamtime at the SuperESCA beamline, where the systems under study have been thoroughly investigated by using the synchrotron radiation produced by Elettra.

The experiments she carried out were primarily aimed at the structural determination of low-dimensional atomic systems, including artificially grown surface phases on transition metal substrates. High energy resolution X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and X-ray Photoelectron Diffraction (XPD) were the techniques of choice in great part of the experiments, and they proved to be an excellent approach for the accurate structural determination of solid surfaces and interfaces. A particular focus was on the growth of ultra-thin films on well-oriented metal surfaces, including ultra-thin oxide films,  surfactant metallic ad-layers and adsorbed alkali metal films on epitaxial graphene.
