Toward Ultrafast In Situ X-ray Studies of Interfacial Photoelectrochemistry

Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY,volume 162)

Abstract

Picosecond time-resolved in situ X-ray absorption and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy techniques for atomic site-specific real-time studies of interfacial photoelectrochemistry are developed at the Advanced Light Source (ALS). First experiments monitor electronic dynamics in films of dye-sensitized nanocrystals and at hematite-electrolyte interfaces.
