Robert A. Bartynski, Director

The Laboratory for Surface Modification (LSM) provides a focus for research in basic and applied studies of high-technology surfaces and interfaces. Its activities involve multidisciplinary research in the disciplines of physics, chemistry, ceramics, materials science, and electrical engineering. Surface modification encompasses a broad spectrum of phenomena that occur at the atomic level on the surface of solids, and advances in this technology have a fundamental impact on the fields of telecommunications, petroleum, superconductivity, computer science, minerals, and chemicals. Research is supported with extensive, state-of-the-art, ultrahigh vacuum instrumentation, electronics, and computational facilities. In addition, the laboratory operates a 1.7 MV Tandetron accelerator, complete with Rutherford backscattering and ion channeling capabilities. Another laboratory facility is a Kratos XSAM Surface Analysis system containing X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Auger electron spectroscopy, and ion-scattering spectroscopy.
