Microscopic Understanding of Surface Chemical Reactions by Vibrational Spectrosocpy

Infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (IRAS), low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), thermal desorption spectroscopy (TDS) etc. are applied to study adsorbed molecules on well-defined solid surfaces. Our research interests are focused on:
(1) Experimental study on potential energy surface of adsorption, migration, and desorption.
(2) Metastable/non-equilibrium adsorbed states at low temperature.
(3) Laser induced surface photochemistry.
(4) Co-adsorption system as a model for solid/liquid interface.
