Verena Pramhaas

Verena is working with a Sum Frequency Generation (SFG) spectroscopy setup, which allows investigating interfaces and adsorbates in high gas pressures or liquids. With this setup Pt thin films and nanoparticles on oxide supports are studied in-situ while catalytic reactions take place. This allows to overcome the pressure gap and might allow to identify reaction intermediates and observe changes in the surface structure of the Pt.
