Ab Elektro Group
Our research is essentially of experimental nature, and focuses on fundamental aspects of interfacial electron transfer, structure of the electrical double layer, and electrocatalysis. Other research areas of activity are corrosion and metal electrodeposition. Methodologically, our research is characterised by the combination of classical electrochemical techniques with non-electrochemical techniques that can provide, in situ, information about the chemical nature of species present at the electrode-electrolyte interface or about the structure, at the atomic scale, of the electrode surface and the electrical double layer. High time (spectroscopy) and spatial (microscopy) resolutions inform our strategy to reach that detailed level of information. The techniques we regularly make use of include, but are not limited to, vibrational and optical spectroscopies, and high-resolution scanning probe microscopy (STM and AFM).
