Interfaces, Nanostructures and Interactions Dynamics

Interfaces, nanoparticles and dynamics of Interactions

The work of Vladimir Esaulov concerns mainly studies of interactions of molecules on surfaces and also some studies are performed regarding various processes involved in ion beam interactions with bulk metal or dielectric surfaces and supported metal nanoparticles.

The work on self assembly concerns the kinetics of adsorption and desorption, the ordering of molecules (with mainly chalcogenide headgroups) and interface properties. In recent years this has partly focussed on assembly on reactive metal surfaces, where there exist C-chalcogen atom scission leading to formation of complex interfaces. In this context I am also interested in the study of chalcogenide materials, families of low dimensional materials with novel properties of interest in applications such as molecular electronics.

Another objective is the creation of metal-molecule ordered hétero-structures. This work is mainly done using synchrotron radiation, complemented by scanning tunnelling microscopy and ion scattering.

I also collaborate in the field of ion scattering with groups in Lanzhou (China) and Valparaiso (Chile). The focus of this work is on the one hand on the study of slowing down (stopping) of slow ions in solids and on the other hand study of electron transfer processes that are of interest in chemical reactivity and whose understanding is also important in using ion scattering as a surface analytical tool.
