Physico-Chimie des Surfaces - Responsable : Philippe Marcus

The Physical-Chemistry of Surfaces group works on relationships between structure, chemical composition of metals and alloys surfaces, and the properties of metal/gas or metal/liquid interfaces, including the key role of surface oxide films. An integrated approach, combining experimental characterization and simulation of well defined model systems at the nano and atomic scale, is used to understand the macroscopic properties, applications are mainly in material area and energy fields.

The surface analysis is a key point of our expertise. The metal/gas and metal/liquid interfaces are characterized by spectroscopic and microscopic methods including X-ray Photoelectcron Spectroscopy, Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry, Scanning Tunnel Macroscopy and Atomic Force Microscopy.
