San Francisco Surface Science

Potpourri of surface studies rangesfrom model systems to complex reactions
Department: Science & Technology

Films measuring just a few molecules in thickness hardly seem substantial enough to alter the properties of a big chunk of material. But they are. In catalysis, electronics, and other areas, the topmost atomic layers of a solid often control chemical reactivity or device performance, and for that reason those layers are often scrutinized in detail.

At last month's American Chemical Society national meeting in San Francisco, surface science was a unifying theme in a . . .
