SYNKNØYT-Progr.f.synkrotron- og nøytron

Development of X-ray modulation enhanced techniques to study surface reactions at industrially relevant conditions

En av utfordringene med å anvende røntgen-teknikker som røntgen diffraksjon (XRD) og absorpsjon (XAS) for å studere katalysatorer er at teknikkene er bulk-teknikker, mens katalyse foregår på overflata. Vi har i dette prosjektet anvendt ulike strategier for å øke følsomheten til teknikkene, og der...
