Interfaces between materials play a vital role in many areas, from electronics to artificial blood vessels. Professor Atsushi Ogura at Meiji University in Tokyo, Japan is at the cutting edge of the study of interfaces buried within materials. A better understanding of these buried interfaces may lead to more efficient solar cells and batteries, artificial bone, more efficient electronic devices, and many other applications.

The ARTOF-2 Time-Of-Flight Analyser

Full Acceptance Cone Measurement for Time Resolved Photoinduced Phase Transitions in LaTe3 | © Nuh Gedik

“The ARTOF is a very nice analyser especially for performing time resolved studies. Operation is more involved than hemispherical analysers and extra care must be taken to avoid MCP ageing. But having the capability to measure the entire dispersion of the 2D angular acceptance cone without having to rotate the sample or use sequential deflection is very useful.”

The work presented in this PhD thesis by Dr. Sabine Auras relates to heterogeneous catalysis, and specifically catalytic reactions of small gas-molecules on solid surfaces. The surface of our curved crystal is cleaned and analyzed initially using a Scienta Omicron UHV system with a variable temperature scanning tunneling microscope (VT STM) consisting of a preparation and analysis chamber, as well as a load lock for transferring samples in and out of vacuum.
