The Surface Chemistry Group is a part of the Materials Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory. The focus of this group’s work is the control surface species, composition, and structure at length scales that range from atomic level to micrometers. The group’s expertise includes time-of-flight ion mass spectrometry, tunable laser spectroscopy, ion sputtering, laser-surface interactions, vapor phase deposition, electrical and electrochemical characterization, and device assembly. We have numerous collaborations within Argonne as well as with chemists, physicists, and materials scientists around the world.
