Vojislav R. Stamenkovic received a Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from University of Belgrade in 2001 after spending three years as a visiting scientist at the University of California at Berkeley. From 2002 to 2005 he was as a postdoctoral scientist within Materials Sciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He received a Recognition Award from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2004, for implementation of fundamental science into nanoscale applications. Since 2006, he is a staff scientist at Materials Science Division in Argonne National Laboratory. His expertise is in solid state physics, physicochemical processes at solid-liquid and solid-gas interfaces, surface science, and electrochemistry. His research interest includes functional nanomaterials, catalysis/electrocatalysis, reaction mechanisms, spectroelectrochemistry, and bioelectrochemistry. In order to resolve fundamental properties of materials he is combining surface specific tools in ultra high vacuum for atomic scale characterization and surface modifications such as low energy ion scattering (LEIS) spectroscopy, Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS), scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopy (STM/AFM), low energy electron diffraction (LEED), electron beam evaporation of sub and multilayered thin films as well as physical vapor deposition. In addition to ultra high vacuum studies related to solid-liquid and solid-gas interfaces he is utilizing in-situ vibrational spectroscopies such FTIR and Raman along with mass spectroscopy (DEMS). He has published over 80 articles and book chapters for which he received over 4,000 citations. His results from high impact journals such as Science, Nature Materials, Angewandte Chemie, were featured in headlines of ANL and LBNL.
