Surface Characterisation Facility

The Surface Nanoscience Research Group is in the Department of Materials at the University of Oxford. They study the atomic scale structure and properties of surfaces and nanostructures, and also investigate molecular ordering on surfaces. their main instruments are two JEOL ultra high vacuum (UHV) scanning tunnelling microscopes (STM) that can image surfaces at atomic resolution over a wide range of temperatures. They also have a third UHV chamber to process materials for our gas sensing project and have a custom-built chamber to test our gas sensors for a variety of low concentrations of analytes. By characterising and processing surfaces on the nanoscale they aim to create new materials for applications in catalysis, gas sensing, microelectronics, and diverse areas of nanotechnology.
