Surface Properties of Metal Oxides - Patrizia Borghetti - Jeudi 16 mars 2017 à 16 h 30

INSP - UPMC - 4 place Jussieu - 75005 Paris - Barre 22-23, 4e étage, salle 317

Patrizia Borghetti, postdoc dans l’équipe « Oxydes en Basses Dimensions » de l’INSP.


The surface properties of metal oxides – their geometric and electronic structure, their reaction during the formation of interfaces – are of key interest in many established and emerging technologies. In the present talk, I will show new experimental results on the surface properties of two popular metal oxides, TiO2 and ZnO, obtained by the group “Oxydes en basses dimensions”. For TiO2, a new method to identify the phase and surface orientation of TiO2 nanostructured samples based on X-ray photoemission spectroscopy is presented [1]. In the case of ZnO, the effect of polarity on the surface reactivity with transition metals is evidenced [2].
