Position 1: You will work quantitatively with the atomic structure and functionality of single nanoparticles in thermal catalysis. The tasks can include: Preparation of microfabricated nanoreactors with single or few nanoparticles for catalysis of chemical reactions in gas phase. Operando studies of single nanoparticles using atomic-resolution transmission electron microscopy techniques. Development of new ultrasensitive and quantitative methods for investigations of gas-surface interactions on nanoparticles at the atomic-scale. Relating the three-dimensional atomic surface structure and catalytic functions of single nanoparticles. Exploring the structure-function relations to develop strategies for designing uniquely active catalyst nanoparticles for sustainable chemical processes. Position 2: You will work quantitatively with the dynamic behaviour of single nanoparticles in thermal catalysis. The tasks can include: Visualization of single nanoparticles in thermal catalysis using time-resolved, atomic-resolution transmission electron microscopy techniques. Development of quantitative image analysis to extract dynamic information encoded in single and series of atomic-resolved images of single nanoparticles. Investigation of dynamic processes at the heterogeneous surface of single nanoparticles as catalytic reactions progress. Understanding of atomic mechanisms and kinetics to develop strategies for stabilizing uniquely active but metastable surface motifs of nanoparticles as catalysts for sustainable chemical processes.
