Two new publications on Curved Crystals

Two new studies using curved crystals have been published!

The first, by S. Blomberg et al. investigates the catalytic activity of the steps of a curved Pd(111) crystal using Planar Laser-Induced Fluorescence, and elucidates the dependence of the light-off temperature on step-type (type A vs type B). (Read a summary of the paper in our portfolio.)

The second publication, by M. Ilyn et al., investigates the structure of a curved Ni(111) using Low Energy Electron Diffraction and Scanning Tunneling Microscopy, exploring the occurrence of step-doubling as a function of temperature and vicinal plane. A striking asymmetry towards step-doubling is found for different step-types. (Read a summary of the paper in our portfolio.)
