Baber Lab Research Interest

  • Heterogeneous catalysis studies using surface science
  • Gold model and inverse model catalysts studies
  • Role of surface modifications on reactivity

Research Description

The Baber Lab uses ultrahigh vacuum surface science studies to simplify complex catalytic materials to better understand reaction pathways and active sites. Our research utilizes a home-built surface analysis chamber to run temperature programmed desorption and Auger electron spectrometry experiments. We also use atomic force microscopy to characterize the morphology of our surfaces.
