Physical, Electronic and Chemical Structure Characterization at Interfaces
Our new lab space is up and running in the chase area of the Micro Nano Fabrication Center.
We use a unique chemical, electronic, and transport characterization approach to holistically investigate and probe the interfacial conversion of energy and matter at atomic to macro-length scales.

Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy
Scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) and scanning electrochemical cell microscopy (SECCM) allow for nanoscale mapping of electrochemical activity.
