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 temperature programmed desorption, Auger electron spectroscopy, and atomic force microscopy to understand how surface modifications affect chemical reactivity and selectivity.
