Finding Active Electrocatalytic Sites with Electrochemical Scanning Tunneling Microscopy

Using hydrogen as a fuel would provide a sustainable and worldwide accessible energy system based on abundant resources and zero emission. But in order to let the dream of a hydrogen economy become true, suitable and high-performing catalysts have to be identified and developed. Commonly, theoretical models and calculations are employed to gather information on the geometric structure of an optimal catalyst and its active sites. In our group, we developed as an experimental supplement, the use of a conventional scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to in-situ identify active sites.


Content of this experimental Master thesis is to apply this technique on different materials and to ideally achieve atomic resolution. Experience with STM is helpful, but not required. Good academic background but also haptic sensitivity are desirable. If you’re interested, please send an e-mail with a short introduction of your person and scientific background.
