 Electrode interface engineering and analysis using in-situ ALD and SR based spectroscopies 

We analyze electrochemical systems by SR based techniques such as XPS, XAS, and resPES.
Two examples will be addressed here. The first concerns the Co-PI catalysts. Here we determine the spin state, chemical state and electrochemical potential s depending on the thickness of as prepared catalysts. We attribute a charge-transfer state forming a Co 3d7 L (s= 1/2) low-spin state to be the most active catalytic site for water oxidation reaction.

The second example deals with Ti-oxide ALD films deposited in-situ on p-Si samples. The modification with TiO2 leads to a significant improvement of the onset potential in comparison to the bare p-Si. In a model we explain these properties by localized in-gap states formed within the Ti-oxide films



to the European Conference on Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Growth website.

ECo MaTech will be held in Bled (Slovenia) from 19th to 21st of September 2013.

Eco MaTech is the third edition of a conference that started in 2009. The aim of ECo MaTech is to gather representatives of academic and R&D institutions, industry, governmental agencies and civil society to:

- present their work, ideas and products, 
- increase fruitful exhanges between all the actors involved in sustainable growth technologies, 
- increase the networking with sustainable growth professionals, 
- establish a general discussion platform on sustainable growth.


The conference excursion will take you to the Alpine lake Bohinj ( and waterfall Savica (
A farewell party will follow the lake trip by a boat. Comfortable shoes are recommended.

Only cash is exepted for on-site payment.

The poster panels are 1m wide and 2m high. The standrad A0 size posters are recommended (841mm:1189mm).
