Department of adsorption phenomena

Department of adsorption phenomena was founded in 1970
on the base of adsorption scientific group of the Department of Physical Electronics.

Gas adsorption (kinetics, desorption spectroscopy, low-temperature molecular adsorption states, interaction of gas molecules with highly dispersed materials);
DFT calculations of atomic structure and electronic properties; kinetic Monte Carlo simulations of gas adsorption; surface reactions under gas interaction with metal and semiconductor surfaces; adsorption-modified surface electronic transport in low-dimensional systems: galvanomagnetic size phenomena, quantum size effect, epitaxial films with spin-polarized surface electronic states

  • Development of mass-spectrometric thermodesorption technique with line-of- sight one pass registration of desorbed particles, which resulted in discovery of mechanism of atomic processes at oxygen adsorption-desorption on surfaces of refractory metals single crystals (B.A. Chuikov, Yu.G. Ptushinskii).
  • Observation of the influence of phase transitions on scattering of conducting electrons at metal surfaces due to electron difraction effects (P.P. Lutsishin, T.N. Nakhodkin, O.A. Panchenko, Yu.G. Ptushinskii).
  • Development of new version of mass-spectrometric technique, which allows, in addition to TPD, formation of molecular beam, cooling samples down to 5 K and measuring of sticking probabilities of molecules (B.A. Chuikov, V.D. Osovskii, Yu.G. Ptushinskii, V.G. Sukretnyi)
  • Investigation of low-temperature (down to 5 K) hydrogen adsorption on refractory metal surfaces and discovery of a set of weakly bound molecular adsorption states. Significant isotope effect takes place in sticking probabilities and their dependences on coverage for hydrogen and deuterium adsorption (B.A. Chuikov, V.D. Osovskii, Yu.G. Ptushinskii, V.G. Sukretnyi).
  • Elaboration of microscopic models of hydrogen associative desorption and CO oxidation reaction (N.V. Petrova, I.N.Yakovkin)
