Surfaces - their physical properties and chemical reactions - present us with problems that are both of fundamental scientific interest and of great technological importance. Thanks to the development of techniques capable of exploring the interface on an atomic scale, solutions to many of these problems are now within reach. Our research focuses on experimental studies of metal and semiconductor surfaces and seeks to provide realistic models for the description of the gas-solid interface, including processes such as chemisorption, film growth, and two-dimensional phase transitions.
