Tuneable Laser Induced Photolytic Reactions of Organic Molecules Under Confinement
(Inga Langguth)

In order to study complex, yet fundamental, chemical processes such as organic reactions or solvation, a low interacting environment is required. To get unperturbed real space insight into these processes by STM, our central strategy is to utilize solid Xenon layers on metals surfaces as a low interaction interface. These layers resemble the environment of rare gas matrices and, hence, allow molecules despite their physiosorbed state to keep their gas phase properties. Confinement effects upon the reactions can, hence, be investigated by modifying the layer and the surface properties.
