Oscar investigates the chemical properties of magnetite (Fe3O4) surfaces. The main goal of this project is to understand the interaction of the magnetite surface with certain organic molecules. That should lead to a better characterization of the magnetite role in special catalytic processes ( like the Water-gas shift reaction). For this purpose Oscar uses analytical techniques like STM, XPS, LEED, and TPD.
